Communiversity Choir, Nova Jazz Singers Hosting Concert
The Kent State Salem Communiversity Choir will share the stage with the Kent State Nova Jazz Singers at a free concert on Sunday, Jan. 19, at 3 p.m. in the Kent State Salem City Center auditorium.
The Communiversity Choir will present a series of musical selections under the direction of Melissa Fucci, associate professor of music at Kent State Salem. The choir is made up of community members, as well as students and faculty from the Salem Campus.
The Nova Jazz Singers was founded in 2012 by Dr. Christopher Venesile, associate professor of choral music education at Kent State, and, through their performances, “fuse the choral tradition with the power and innovation of jazz.”
The ensemble performs annually at premier jazz clubs in Northeast Ohio, New York City jazz clubs, the Elmhurst Jazz Festival in Chicago and, in 2020, will be featured at the Ohio Music Education Association State Professional Conference.
