Join us for a night of jazz in the Spring Lake MIDDLE School Auditorium with the Michigan State University Jazz Octets I and II and Vocalist Vanessa Rubin. The concert is on March 17th at 7:00pm. Tickets are $5 each.
Jazz vocalist Vanessa Rubin’s voice is hailed for its “crystalline clarity, hearth-like warmth, and playful lioness sass.” She brings diverse influences to her vocal performances, and her passion for rich musical stories can be heard throughout her albums and numerous guest appearances. Rubin is a favorite at jazz clubs and festivals in the US and abroad, and she works as a producer and educator/clinician with youth in communities and educational institutions worldwide. The evening of jazz features performances with MSU Jazz Octets and caps a week of mentoring, touring and performing as part of the MSUFCU Jazz Artist in Residence program.
