Discover Possibility – a concert with Touch of Blue: New American Vocal Ensemble 

Free and open to the public. No pre-registration is required. 

Touch of Blue: New American Vocal Ensemble presents Discover Possibility, a concert featuring new works from various jazz composers including several premieres. This concert takes place on April 20, 2023 at 7:30PM at the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

Touch of Blue: New American Vocal Ensemble is a group of all-student musicians who have a passion for creating and performing new music for vocal artists and beyond. Their eclectic and vibrant sound is a blend of contemporary and traditional influences, with a touch of jazz that makes for an exciting and engaging performance. This concert features five new compositions–written by Kenyon Duncan, Harry Baker, Karen Jane Ludwig, Jerome Walker, and Harry Castle–the combination of their music being a reflection of their unique perspectives, experiences, and creative voices.

This concert is in conjunction with Study Days @ UMMA, an annual, week-long study space for students in the museum during finals week. The museum is filled with activities, snacks, music, and more, providing a much-needed break from the stress of exams.

Discover Possibility is cosponsored by the U-M School of Music, Theatre and Dance; Arts at Michigan; SMTD Excel Lab and Career Center; and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA).
