A Winter Warmer
Fretless, Boston Jazz Voices, and Integration By Parts will perform
this coming Saturday, Dec. 11 at First Parish Church in Bedford, MA
at 8 pm. Join these performers for an evening of a cappella music
and merriment that will run the gamut from jazz standards and big
band pieces to the Beatles, including some seasonal favorites.
Boston Jazz Voices (formerly the New England Close Harmony Ensemble
or NECHE), is a unique jazz choir. Unlike most a cappella groups,
which consist of 4-5 singers, the eighteen accomplished jazz singers
of Boston Jazz Voices can blend as one voice or swing in tight eight-
part harmonies like a vocal big band. Formed almost 20 years ago,
Boston Jazz Voices has performed in jazz clubs, concert halls and
private venues from New England to Paris.
Fretless is an award-winning a cappella quintet featuring male and
female singers with a repertoire of jazz, pop and classical
pieces. "Fretless" chose its name to represent the musical freedom
and challenge of making music with a fretless instrument: the
voice. You will be amazed by this entertaining, innovative and
highly accomplished vocal group.
Integration by Parts is a six-member vocal band. This merry band of
music veterans has crafted a unique sound influenced heavily by
jazz, breathing new life into everything from pop to folk to classic
rock. Known for their tight vocal harmonies, but never in danger of
taking themselves too seriously, the members of IBP infuse their
performances with exuberance and a healthy shot of humor.
This performance will delight your ears, make your toes tap and send
you home humming. Please join us. Tickets are $12, $8 for students
and seniors, available at the door.
