CENTRE FOR JAZZ STRIKES GOLD (article first published : 2003-04-21)

The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music in collaboration with the Music Department at the University of Natal will present a one-off concert by Gold Company at Howard College Theatre on May 9 at 17h30.

From the United States, Gold Company is widely recognized as one of the best collegiate vocal jazz ensembles in the world. The 25 member group comprises an excellent seven piece band, singers and soloists and is directed by Stephen Zegree, a classical and jazz pianist in his own right. He co-produced Mark Murphy’s recording, The Nat King Cole Songbook, a Grammy award nomination.

The concert repertoire showcases every style from jazz standards to Broadway to the hits of today and the ensemble has appeared throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Their guest artists have included Bobby McFerrin, Rosemary Clooney and Jon Hendricks and they have won over 25 “DB” awards from Down Beat magazine, most recently in May 2002.

Although the concert on May 9 will be at Howard College Theatre, starting time will be the popular Jazz Centre happy hour time of 17h30. It will be a two-hour performance and tickets can be booked by calling Glynis on 031 260 3385 or Debbie on 031 260 3353. Tickets R40 (R20 students), with a discount for block bookings of more than 10.

Drinks will be sold before the concert and during interval. Don’t miss this dynamic show which combines the elements of top talent and music education.
