Kim Nazarian, Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader, Peter Eldridge, and the rest of the faculty will work with the students in their assigned ensembles as well as in the wide variety of electives, one on one coaching and other special events surrounding to the art and performance of vocal jazz.  Pre-established groups are welcome and encouraged to attend, as well.
