Join us for a fabulous evening of cabaret by FIU jazz vocalists and rhythm section! The Jazz Vocal Ensemble is directed by Dr. Lisanne Lyons and consists of twelve to fifteen vocalists and a four-piece rhythm section who perform a varied and challenging repertoire of jazz and jazz-influenced music, as well as contemporary, Latin, and a cappella styles.
In July 2021 the group was honored with a Student Music Award from Downbeat Magazine, widely recognized as the most prestigious publication in jazz education. In January 2023, they were the first group to recognize FIU at the Jazz Education Network Conference.
The group emphasizes close harmonies, improvisation, cutting-edge repertoire, and new works by students and FIU faculty. They also perform music from the library of Manhattan Transfer, New York Voices, Swingle Singers, Groove for Thought, and original arrangements written by some of the finest jazz arrangers in the country. The group is open for auditions for all FIU music students and all vocal jazz principles and majors.
