Halton JAZZ Singers
Halton JAZZ Singers is a community adult vocal jazz group. Our mandate is to entertain and educate using the vocal jazz idiom and our voice as our instrument!
Halton JAZZ Singers, were the winners of the City of Burlington, Festivals & Events, 2 week Public Vote, for the "Canada Day Performer Contest." HJS has been contracted to perform "O Canada" on July 1st, Canada Day, Spencer Smith Park, with Symphony on the Bay Orchestra, as the culmination to the day's celebrations! Halton JAZZ Singers is honoured and humbled to be the vocal cataliyst performing Canada's national anthem as a music prelude to the giant fireworks display at 10:00 p.m. Come see! Come hear!
Halton JAZZ Singers come from all walks of life – teachers, executives, engineers, retirees! The common thread is that we are musicians first: we are able to independently & proficiently sight read and sight sing from published music 4 part vocal charts and we thrive on small 4part group vocals in the vocal jazz element.
PERFORMING AT YOUR EVENT
Halton JAZZ Singers can perform as a quartet or a trio. We can perform two thirty minute sets or another format to suit your needs. We are extremely portable: we have our own brand new powerful sound system & mixing board. We use digital music backing tracks or we sing songs that are a cappella (without instrumental accompaniment), such as those written by George Gershwin, Johnny Mercer or Duke Ellington. Either way, we bring & use our own microphones and sound amplification system which means that we can perform indoors in any size room or auditorium; or outdoors on your patio on warm sunny afternoons!
FEES: Halton JAZZ Singers is very affordable. Fees can vary depending on length of performance, travel time etc. We are confident we can work with your budget!
