The New York Voices, a Grammy Award-winning jazz vocal group, will perform on Feb. 2 at Shaker High School for a benefit concert in member Kim Nazarian's hometown.
continued “I’ve actually heard about Kim from my dad because he went to school with her,” said Conroy. “I like music. I’m still learning music and I think it’s complicated but still very fun.”
Nazarian said “persistence and dedication,” plus making the right connections, are the keys to succeeding in the music world.
“When you are supported and taken under the wing of these great legends and icons it’s a wonderful shot in the arm,” said Nazarian.
If you do achieve success, Nazarian said it’s your responsibility to share that, which is exactly what she plans to do.
“That’s a responsibility that falls upon those that are blessed with good fortune in this business and industry; to nurture the quality that comes after you and support that,” said Nazarian. “Maybe there’s the next vocal group at Shaker High School.”
The New York Voices and high school choir will present a concert in the high school auditorium on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for reserved seating and more information about ordering tickets is available online at www.northcolonie.org.
