Welcome to the official website for the Internationally Acclaimed Jazz Vocal Group
New York Voices
Poke around. We are beginning to see signs of life out in the live and in person performance world, and that is putting a new spring in our step……that and the flowers bursting all over. It helps…right? We’re beginning to feel a little hope, a little brush of a hand, a little smile seen just beyond a mask that can live in your back pocket while enjoying the great outdoors. We look forward to seeing you, connecting with you and appreciating a world that has lived under wraps for so long. Lauren, Kim, Peter and Darmon
It’s Camp Time!!!
And guess what we’re doing it…..we’re doing both of em!! We are going to re-animate our Western Michigan University – New York Voices Vocal Jazz Camp like we did last year….virtually….but this time there are some super duper amazing special guests. And we are braving our first transatlantic flight to Germany later this summer to teach in-person at our collaborative camp with the Bayerische Musikakademie Marktoberdorf.

Check out our latest release, Reminiscing in Tempo.
Threading the ages, New York Voices weaves their vocal arranging and elegant point of view on melody, harmony and shape through composers they admire on their latest outing. Ellington, Corea, Brubeck, Hersch, Porter, Lennon and McCartney, Lins and Cuba’s Cervantes are the welcoming prisms for them to ring their voices into a fine tapestry of color, sound and light. Produced while celebrating their 30th year together as an ensemble, they have gathered this collection into what is a curator’s wish list for an evening’s program. Taking these compositions in their care, they tend to invert, change time signature and reharm, but never so far that the lyric doesn’t sing front and center. And with intermittent a cappella palate cleansers throughout the sequence, the listener gets to experience the set as the artist envisioned. Also included in this fine array of compositions are two from the group, allowing just enough room to insert a few originals to complete their “Reminiscing in Tempo.”
