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, audience engaging concerts. Our Autumn and Spring Vocal Jazz Showcase concerts feature the signature studio groups UVJAZZ RED and UVJAZZ BLUE, the UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA JAZZ CHORALE, and various spotlight combos. UVJAZZ RED has opened for the internationally acclaimed vocal group Groove for Thought, Canadian sensation Countermeasure, and has received high praise from vocal jazz legends Kirby Shaw and Dave Barduhn and master educators Vijay Singh, Peter Taylor and Janet Warren.
