The 14th Annual Sister City Female Vocalist Jazz Audition at Jazz Alley is right around the corner so mark your calendars! The Seattle Kobe Sister City Association (SKSCA) is pleased to announce its Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Audition. SKSCA will select one high school and one adult female jazz vocalist from the greater Seattle area to Kobe, Japan to perform at the Kobe Shinkaichi Jazz Queen Vocalist Contest on May 12, 2018.

Every fall for the last seventeen years, the winner of the Kobe Jazz Queen Contest has flown from Japan to Seattle to debut in the U.S. at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley. This year, the SKSCA is proud to host its 14th jazz vocalist audition as a reciprocal exchange to send two Seattle female jazz vocalists to Japan.

Finalists will be selected by early March, and they will perform at a live audition at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley on Monday, March 19, 2018, from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. (Doors open at 6:00 pm.) Family, friends, and community members are encouraged to come and support the finalists. Tickets are $15.00 with proceeds supporting this and future Seattle-Kobe Jazz competitions.
