The UVIC VOCAL JAZZ ENSEMBLE has established a reputation for artistic excellence, stylistic flexibility and performances of original and inspiring arrangements. In addition to highly successful performances at the Vocal Summit (2012) and the Frank Demiero Jazz Fest (2016), the Ensemble is well known for its fun-filled, filled-to-capacity audience engaging concerts. Our Autumn and Spring Vocal Jazz Showcases feature the signature studio group UVJAZZ RED, the **new** JAZZ SHOW CHOIR, various spotlight combos, ELLAVATION (women's chorale) and the VOCAL JAZZ STAGE ORCHESTRA. UVJAZZ RED has opened for the internationally acclaimed vocal group GROOVE FOR THOUGHT, Canadian sensation COUNTERMEASURE, and has received high praise from legends Kirby Shaw and Dave Barduhn, and master educators Vijay Singh, Peter Taylor and Janet Warren.
