Heading To Monterey, Gold Company To Perform First In Grand Rapids

Sep 12, 2018

Gold Company, last March at the 2018 Next Generation Jazz Festival in Monterey, CA.

Last March, Western Michigan University's acclaimed vocal jazz ensemble Gold Company won its division at the prestigious Next Generation Jazz Festival. Later this month, they'll jet back to California be featured at the 61st annual Monterey Jazz Festival, a world-famous gathering of over 500 jazz artists. Closer to home, in Grand Rapids, MI on Thursday, Sep 20 at 7:30 pm, Gold Company will perform on the Great American Voices series presented by historic Park Church, one of the oldest churches in the city of Grand Rapids.

Greg Jasperse, director of Gold Company, and Patrick Colye, music director at Park Church, joined Cara Lieurance to preview the concert and sing the praises of the always-polished ensemble.
