The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra and New York Voices will unite to recreate the magic that won them the 1996 Grammy Award for their inspired collaboration, “Live at Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild,” as part of the Performing Arts Series on April 5, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in Goshen College’s Sauder Concert Hall.

Despite Basie’s passing in 1984, his orchestra has remained a force in jazz music and has won 17 Grammy Awards. Currently under the direction of Dennis Mackrel, the famed orchestra remains one of the most elite performing organizations in jazz.

New_York_VoicesThe New York Voices are known for their inspired arrangements and unparalleled vocal blend, having refined their musical story to a fine art. With deep interests rooted in jazz, Brazilian, rhythm and blues, classical and pop, their music mixes traditional sensibilities with more than a dash of the unexpected.
