Hayley Kirkland, Director
Known for its complex harmonies, tight grooves, improvisation, and unique combination of vocalists and instrumentalists, BYU Syncopation is a breath of fresh air to audiences of all kinds. There is something for everyone here! Syncopation seeks to provide a transformative experience for our listeners as we explore traditional and modern jazz sub genres including blues, swing, bebop, Latin, funk, pop and fusion, while staying true to our vocal jazz roots through honest and evocative story-telling and lyric interpretation. Under the direction of Hayley Kirkland, Syncopation is comprised of eight to twelve vocalists and a four-piece rhythm section.
Rehearsals for Syncopation will be Monday/Wednesday 1:00-2:50pm, with an additional sectional once per week (time TBD per group members’ schedules), and 2 out-of-class performances.
