World at the Garden: New York Voices
MusicFest Vancouver closes with an al fresco evening featuring New York Voices – cool vocal jazz on a hot summer night on the Great Lawn of VanDusen Botanical Garden. Celebrating their 25th year, this Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble is renowned for their excellence in jazz and the art of group singing. Like the great groups that have come before, such as Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Singers Unlimited, and Manhattan Transfer, they have learned from the best and taken the art form to new levels. While rooted in jazz, New York Voices calls on influences ranging from R&B, Brazilian, classical, and pop music to create a fresh exciting sound. They have traveled the globe performing with artists such as Bobby McFerrin, Nancy Wilson, George Benson, and the Count Basie Orchestra. Bring a picnic and settle in for a vocal jazz treat!
