Artist Series—Hawkeye Celebrates the Arts!

m-pact—Pop/Jazz Acapella Group

Hailed as “one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world” by the San Francisco Chronicle, m-pact is respected worldwide as a cutting-edge trailblazer, emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction. They have cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature’s “first instrument”—the human voice. Their eclectic selections have won them honors, including Vocal Group of the Year from the Los Angles Music Awards and Artist of the Year from the Seattle Music Awards.

The New American Songbook: The James Tormé Trio—Pop/Jazz Music

Take an extraordinary ride through music’s past and present with the songs that have impacted and influenced us all. James Tormé and his All-Star Trio explore a century of American music history, from Duke Ellington’s up-tempo classic Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing) and Thelonious Monk’s Round Midnight to Stevie Wonder’s unforgettable Superstition and the body-swaying Rock With You, made famous by Michael Jackson. Tormé reminds us that, while time has moved on, a great song is still a great song—no matter when it was written.
