Vocal Duets For Fun!

Finally! What you all have been waiting for! Sing with one of the finest in vocal jazz, Rebecca Kilgore!

Becky will present a super fun four week workshop for 10 participants(both male and female). She’s had great success and great times teaching this workshop series at various camps across the country.

You will learn two-part harmonies as a group, but they can also be sung by two individuals. Becky will share her “ borrowed” material from Doris Day, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee, Bing Crosby, Betty Hutton, Andrew Sisters, and others.  

Songs will start easy and then get a little more complicated with hip counter-melodies! Music reading ability is not required but printed music will be available.  Becky will hand out lyric sheets, and will go over the melodies and harmonies many times as a group  It’s great for any musician’s ears!.    The songs are lighthearted and charming!

Please Note: Becky suggested that there will be a public recital performance in August(TBA) for this group. How fun!

Open to all, especially if you can accurately replicate pitches you hear.

Rebecca Kilgore Bio:

Rebecca Kilgore, renowned for her swinging melodic interpretation of music familiar and obscure from the Great American Songbook, has been delighting listeners not only with her many recordings but her ebullient live performances. Her fans include Terry Gross, Bucky Pizzarelli, Michael Feinstein, Harry Allen, Dave Frishberg, Dan Barrett, and John Sheridan. Tender or hilarious, her singing always honors the song.

She has over 50 recordings to her credit (most thanks to the Arbors Records label) and over 1,000 songs in her repertoire (and counting).  Her most recent recording is with German pianist/arranger Bernd Lhotzky and the group Echoes of Swing, with whom she tours in Germany.  Other recordings include collaborations with Nicki Parrott, Dan Barrett, Dave Frishberg, Harry Allen, John Sheridan, Paolo Alderighi, Eddie Erickson, Hal Smith, Lyle Ritz, John Pizzarelli, Bucky Pizzarelli, Duke Heitger, Randy Porter, and James Mason.

Originally from Massachusetts, she’s resided in Oregon since 1980 but keeps busy touring the US, Europe, and performing on jazz cruises.

“When Rebecca sings, the sun comes out.”

– Johnny Mandel
