Since its inception four decades ago, the New England Conservatory’s jazz program has been producing an impressive roster of young singers, largely due to the presence of JazzProject Recording Artist and virtuosic vocalist/composer, Dominique Eade. The newest crop of current students and alumni are no exception and they have decided to put their education and their voices together to create Prism, an all-star vocal ensemble featuring original arranging, masterful solo singing and lush harmonies. "Hearing any one of these innovative young singers live would be a treat, but to have their impressive talents combined in one group gives a glimpse of the future of vocal jazz group singing not to be missed," comments Eade, who served as a mentor to nearly every member.
Members: Aubrey Johnson, Tammy Scheffer, Katie Seiler, Laura Grill, Richard Saunders, Tomas Cruz, J.C. Coffey
