Manchester Craftsmen's Guild Jazz announces auditions for the next great male jazz vocalist
The Gentlemen Sing: Three Generations of Song featuring Allan Harris and Ernie Andrews is missing its next generation singer.
This brand-new curated project by Marty Ashby and MCG Jazz [Manchester Craftsmen's Guild Jazz] features Allan Harris, Ernie Andrews and a brand-new artist that will be chosen by nationwide search. MCG Jazz opens the search with a nationwide call for submissions from young male jazz vocalists, followed by live auditions here in Pittsburgh with Allan Harris and Freddy Cole. The project will culminate in a two-concert presentation showcasing Allan Harris, Ernie Andrews and a brand new jazz star!
MCG Jazz invites young male jazz vocalists, ages 18 to 35, to submit resumes and videos and compete to win the ultimate prize: a 2-show live concert appearance at MCG Jazz on February 28, 2014 with superstar Allan Harris and living legend Ernie Andrews.
Every entry must include the application (downloadable at MCGJazz.org), a resume and a 5- to 7-minute video that includes the individual singing “It Could Happen to You” in a medium tempo and one tune of his choosing. Submissions are being accepted electronically beginning July 1, 2013.
