Vermont a capella jazz group seeks tenor

Postby maple jam » Fri Aug 19, 2016 8:10 pm

Hey, Vermont a cappella fans - Maple Jam is now holding auditions for a tenor!

Maple Jam is a semi-professional jazz a cappella octet based in Burlington, Vermont. We are a mixed ensemble (4 guys and 4 gals), established in 2004. We sing 5– to 8-part arrangements of jazz and big-band arrangements à la the Swingle Singers, Singers Unlimited, Manhattan Transfer and the Real Group, as well as our own. We rehearse weekly and gig throughout Vermont and, at times, in surrounding states and Southern Canada. Because we all have lives and other musical endeavors, we limit our gigs to about 12 performances per year. We’re an eclectic group of individuals: our current age range is from 30-somethings to 60-somethings. We like to have fun and joke around during our rehearsals together, but we are also serious, dedicated musicians who work hard toward our common goal, which is to achieve excellence in a cappella performance.

Our ideal candidate would have: a good blending voice + solo abilities; music reading skills; comfort with swing and jazz idioms such as scatting - or a strong desire and willingness to learn. Memorization skills and good pitch are key! Arranging skills or Vocal Percussion abilities are definitely a plus!

If you are interested, please contact Vikki Day at to set up your audition. Please include “AUDITION” in the subject line.
