Darmon Meader appointed to IU Jacobs School of Music vocal jazz faculty

PRESS RELEASE -The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music is pleased to announce that Darmon Meader will join its faculty as adjunct lecturer in jazz studies and choral conducting this fall.

Meader -- recognized in both the vocal and instrumental jazz worlds -- has achieved global recognition as founder, musical director, chief arranger, composer, producer, saxophonist and vocalist with New York Voices.

He joins Steve Zegree, Pam and Jack Burks Professor of Music and director of the school's vocal jazz program, and Ly Wilder, visiting lecturer, on the vocal jazz faculty.

"I am thrilled that Darmon Meader is joining the Jacobs faculty," said Zegree. "Darmon is internationally recognized as a founding member of New York Voices and also as an accomplished composer, arranger, jazz saxophonist and virtuoso scat singer. The new vocal jazz major at Indiana University -- combined with the already storied instrumental jazz program -- offers our students extraordinary educational experiences and performance opportunities."

Wow what a superb faculty for the serious vocal jazz student.
