Pop, rock, hip-hop coming to Dart
Students at LCC have many talents. Some can dance, others can sing, some play sports and some excel in academics.
Students in the Vocal Jazz and Pop Ensemble have mastered many styles of music. They perform a mix of jazz standards and current hits that range from pop and rock to R&B and more.
The Vocal Jazz and Pop Ensemble will take place Friday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Dart Auditorium. The concert is free.
Director Kelly Stuible-Clark said the group has been working on the music since the beginning of the semester.
“This is a great opportunity to not only hear good music, but also support LCC students who have worked hard on challenging music all semester,” Stuible-Clark said.
Stuible-Clark said music is important for everyone.
“Music taps into human emotion and experiences on many levels,” Stuible-Clark said. “With an ensemble like this there is also a strong sense of teamwork and collaboration. The songs can’t come together unless all parts are strong.”
Stuible-Clark said she hopes the event will allow audience members to get a look into the talent LCC has to offer.
“LCC has a strong talent pool in our commercial music program and this ensemble allows us to showcase those students,” Stuible-Clark said.
The event will include professional jazz pianist Bill Bastian. Stuible-Clark said Bastian will provide students with knowledge of jazz.
“I am hoping that the audience will enjoy the evening and be exposed to some new music,” Stuible-Clark said. “I always try to program as many styles as we can, so there should be something for everyone.
“I’m looking forward to sharing the talent of these singers as well as all of the hard work they’ve put into this set.”
