Just in Time Vocal Jazz, three choirs directed by Wendy Nixon Stothert, will be performing Iconic, a familiar collection of hit songs of the last 100 years. Tickets are selling fast for two Dec. 6 performances (one matinee at 2 p.m. and one evening concert at 7:30 p.m.) to be held Comox Pentecostal Church.
This is not a Christmas concert, but don’t worry as we will Fix You up with some of the greatest hits from the last century. Bring the Man in the Mirror and come hear the ‘Brave’ Girl From Ipanema as she takes the Stairway to Heaven in her Blue Suede Shoes. Join Me and Julio, Sweet Georgia Brown and the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and we’ll see you Over the Rainbow!
Just in Time Vocal Jazz is a collection of three choirs, each with their own unique sound: Unplugged, a 65 member unauditioned choir, Jazzy Jems, an auditioned women’s group and Vocal Minority, an auditioned mixed group.
All three will be accompanied by Sean Mooney on piano, and a killer band with Jake Masri, Oscar Robles Diaz, Britt Bowman, and Anela Kahiamoe.
You will get lost in the chocolatey harmonies, however Just In Time Jazz choirs would like to apologize in advance if these songs get stuck in your head for days and days.
Tickets are on sale at Blue Heron Books in Comox and House of Color on 5th Street in Courtenay or from choir members for $15 each. Don’t miss it. It’ll be a blast.
