Roosevelt Vocal Jazz Shines Brightly

Alex Mountsier took the top prize, and Maya Hunter received special mention as four of our top singers were honored as semi-finalists in the Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Audition.

Along with Alex and Maya, Celeste Yglesias and Eliana Colachis rounded out the quartet who grabbed four of the six finalist spots, performing at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley on Monday, March 9.

The competition is sponsored by the Seattle-Kobe Sister City Association, which selected Alex and one adult female jazz vocalist (Taylor Zickefoose) from the greater Seattle area to travel to Kobe, Japan to perform at the Kobe Jazz Queen Vocalist Contest on May 9th, 2015.
