For the second annual summer, I became a “camper” in the SMV (School for Music Vocations) Vocal Jazz Camp. Under the direction of Dr. Jeremy Fox, (head of the Creston, Iowa school), I spent 12 hour days working on solo and choral vocal jazz technique in the company of like-minded students, colleagues and instructors from Manitoba and beyond. The program is designed to inspire and challenge all participants at a level for which they are suited as well as serve as a positive influence to achieve their own “personal best”. The music selections range from vocal jazz standards to contemporary selections, including original works which have been primarily arranged by Jeremy and/or his team. Fantastic program and outstanding learning experience!!
