MARIETTA — Marietta College’s Jazz Combo and Floodstage will team up for a spring Jazz and A Cappella concert – Can’t Stop that Feeling! – at 7:30 p.m. April 19.

The performance, which is free and open to the public, will be in the Alma McDonough Auditorium.

“This concert is a collaboration between the two ensembles,” said Jay Dougherty, director of Choral Activities.

“We’re excited to share the stage with the jazz combo once again. I think the music works well together. In fact, for the third concert in a row, the two ensembles will also close the concert with a combined number.”

The jazz combo is directed by Jordan Reed and Floodstage is directed by Dougherty.

“Jordan is a master of jazz. His energy, passion, and musicianship are evident when you see and hear the jazz combo perform,” Dougherty said. “Floodstage is Marietta College’s contemporary a cappella ensemble. We sing familiar modern music, all unaccompanied.”

Floodstage will conduct a tour in Ohio for a few weeks in May.

“We’re excited to share the music of Marietta College with potential high school students around the state,” Dougherty said.
