We are thrilled to add post-performance discussions immediately following the Friday performance. Moderated by members of the department faculty and featuring a rotating array of cast and artistic team members, Curtain Call Fridays offer a rare opportunity for audience members to talk about the production, exploring topics that range from the rehearsal process to character development to the creative decisions behind the production or issues raised by the work.

Don Chisholm Vocal Jazz Masterclass: Sunny Wilkinson

Jan. 18 & Feb. 22, 3:00pm
Stearns Building, Cady Room
Free - no tickets required

Sunny Wilkinson has taken her place in that elite group of jazz vocalists who have stretched the boundaries and found themselves "one of a kind." Her performance credits are impressive, having sung with The Count Basie Band, Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass, Clark Terry, Mark Murphy, Milt Hinton, Curtis Fuller, and Edgar Winter, among others. Wilkinson performs regularly at jazz festivals and clubs across the country. She is the past president of the Michigan chapter of the International Association of Jazz Educators and the past chairperson for IAJE’s Women’s Caucus. She is the co-founder of IAJE's Sisters in Jazz mentoring program.
