New York University Jazz Choir
In April 2005 a group of students of NYU came on a tour to Aruba under direction of Ira Shankman. The NYU Jazz choir gave different performances in Aruba these include: at IPA (Instituto Pedagogico Arubano), International school, and they give an presentation for the Kunstkring of Aruba. They also performed for the program “Jazzimagination” in Cas di Cultura where different groups performed Jazz music and Dance. The highlight of the NYU Jazz choir was the song “Serenada” from Irwin Provence, where the students perform this song in Papiamento. They received a standing ovation.
