The Singers 2: Class 1 of 4
April 3, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Betty Carter & Carmen McRae: “The Unsung Heroes”
The first class will focus on two of the most accomplished and influential jazz singers of the 20th century. Betty Carter was known for her improvisational skill and startling musicality. Carmen McRae is considered one of a handful of the genre’s most respected vocalists, with her distinctive use of back phrasing and lyric interpretation.
This four part course, led by singer and JAZZ.FM91 on-air host Heather Bambrick, will continue where The Singers part 1 left off, profiling another list of quintessential jazz singers. Each two-hour class will feature an in-depth look into the life and work of the genre’s most influential vocalists, exploring their biographies, influences, importance, and continued legacies.
Note: This course is open to everyone, including those who missed The Singers Part 1!
Teaching the course will be JAZZ.FM91 on-air host and JUNO-nominated singer Heather Bambrick. Her deep knowledge and warm, good-humoured discussion style will leave students informed, inspired, and entertained as she leads them through this examination of Jazz singing at its best!
Taking place at JAZZ.FM91 in Liberty Village, this four-session, evening course will meet for two hours weekly. JAZZ.FM91 donors are offered discounted fees.
