What could be better than combining the wonderful quality of the human voice with the hip sound of jazz? Lead by pianist Wayne Wilentz, The Capital City Voices is an established, premier jazz choir that has been delighting DC area audiences for years and has found a new home at Levine!
Capital City Voices at Levine stays in the tradition of great vocal jazz groups such as Manhattan Transfer and Take 6, but with a style uniquely its own. Mix in a bit of R&B and jazz with a touch of gospel, and you have a recipe for a rewarding (and fun!) vocal experience.
Capital City Voices at Levine welcomes most levels of singers, from beginners to advanced vocalists, semi-professionals, and music teachers. Musical arrangements reflect classic American and Brazilian jazz styles and at each session singers learn something new about music, jazz, and their own voices.
This chorus will meet in person. No audition required. The choir meets for two hours each rehearsal, working on both vocal repertoire and general jazz concepts. Periodic public performances are presented.
