The Central Choir is proud to present The Real Group, live in concert on Saturday April, 21 at Central’s auditorium. The Real Group, from Sweden, is one of the top vocal jazz groups in the world, according to Central Choir Director Troy Meeker.  This concert is being presented in part by the Central Choir program as well as the Sedona Academy of Chamber Singers.   Both local groups will also perform during the concert. 

“They have a different take on jazz than many of their American contemporaries which makes them intriguing to listen to,”   Meeker said.   “This is only one of two performances that The Real Group currently has scheduled in the U.S. during this tour so we are expecting a sell out for this very special one night event.”

Tickets are $14, $17 and $20 and can be purchased online at www.realgroupphx.eventbrite.com

Meeker has also arranged for the quintet to conduct a two-hour student workshop for choir students throughout the Valley earlier in the day.  For more information, contact Troy Meeker at meeker@phoenixunion.org
