Vocal Jazz Ensemble
Dr. Ian Loeppky, Director
A small group chosen from the Collegiate Singers, the Vocal Jazz Ensemble explores the uniquely American idiom of jazz as well as pop and world music. Most often, the VJE sings acappella or with a little percussion (either real or "vocalized"!). They perform in concerts on and off campus, touring in the spring with Collegiate Singers. The Vocal Jazz Ensemble has been featured often at the W. C. Handy Festival in Florence and the Panoply Festival of the Arts in Huntsville.
