On arrival, temperatures will be taken at the front door, and questionnaires filled out. Participants will then enter the theater and proceed to a plexiglass booth where they will be coached by Nancy and her accompanist. Two booths will be on stage: immediately after each use, microphones will be sanitized. Nancy Kelly, internationally known jazz vocalist, will work with participants in a friendly, supportive master-class environment, with professional piano accompaniment. Participants are coached on all elements of song delivery, such as posture, tone, key placement, deportment, and interaction with the audience. Vocalists are encouraged to prepare songs from the “Great American Songbook”. For students, the New York State School Music Association (nyssma.org) has a recommended list of songs.

On Sunday, participants are invited to return to perform for friends and family and the public in an elegant “Stars of Tomorrow Cabaret” accompanied by the CNY Jazz Trio. The cabaret includes bar service and Nancy Kelly closes out the show with the CNY Jazz Trio!
