NEW YORK VOICES
New York Voices—comprising Peter Eldridge, Lauren Kinham, Darmon Meader and Kim Nazarian—are known for their close-knit vocals, inspired arrangements and unparalleled vocal blend. Their chameleon-like musicianship allows them to move seamlessly from setting to setting, be it orchestral and big band to an intimate trio line-up. With deep interests rooted in jazz, Brazilian, R&B, classical, and pop, their music mixes traditional sensibilities with more than a dash of the unexpected. Like the great jazz vocal groups that have come before—Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Singers Unlimited, and The Manhattan Transfer—they are firmly a part of that legacy and are dedicated to passing it on to generations to come. They will lead a master class with Harvard undergraduate singers, co-sponsored by Harvard’s vocal harmony group VoxJazz.... Read more about a master class with NEW YORK VOICES
