Event Details

                                    
                   Featured Artists Concert Series
The Oakland Jazz Choir has been an institution for over twenty years. During this span the group has taken on many shapes, sizes and forms, but the common denominator has always been the same: Joy of expression, using the voice to communicate the triumphs as well as the turbulence of the human spirit.

While jazz forms the base of their musical concept, OJC ventures far from that base, but always putting a jazzy twist on the material. Artistic Director Ben Flint, a native of Memphis, TN, is steeped in gospel, jazz and R&B, but applies his diverse musical experience to finding a uniquely Oakland sound.

Choir membership includes 15 singers - as diverse in age, religion and race - as their hometown demographics of Oakland. Their focus though is small, narrowing in on cool, original and standard jazz material, arranged and/or written specifically for their collective voice.

For their Musically Minded performance, the group will perform a fresh set of music comprised of their current repertoire, including classics by Thelonius Monk, Sonny Rollins, Duke Ellington and Pat Matheny. To mix it up a bit, some pop, blues and R&B will be added.
