The Crypt Jazz Restaurant
UCT Vocal Ensemble
The UCT Jazz Voices comprises five of the best Jazz Singing students at U.C.T. under the leadership of well-known jazz artist, Amanda Tiffin.
As the new head of Jazz Singing at UCT, Amanda Tiffin established this small Vocal ensemble in 2010, primarily as a learning tool for students of Jazz Singing. However the ensemble far exceeded anyone’s expectations, and has quickly become a top class Jazz vocal group in the tradition of the Manhattan Transfer and the New York Voices. They offer an exciting blend of close harmony in the old jazz tradition and youthful energy, performing a range of repertoire from timeless jazz classics, South African standards and re-imaginings of current radio hits.
This performance by UCT Vocal Ensemble at The Crypt Jazz Restaurant is part of the Concerts SA Venue Circuit which aims to foster a love and support for live music in our communities, as well as anchor small and medium sized venues in urban and rural Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape.
THE CRYPT: Famous historic meeting place beneath St George’s Cathedral where African and International jazz, cultures and cuisine fuse. The St George’s Cathedral Crypt, built in 1898, is an important Cape Town landmark and museum. Now a jazz restaurant, The Crypt serves dinner and drinks in a setting that retains a sense of its history and charm.
