Frank DeMiero - BC Honour Vocal Jazz Ensemble
Composer, singer and jazz pianist Dave Frishberg calls Frank DeMiero "the Vince Lombardi of Vocal Jazz.
...
Not only is that an accurate description, but it's one that Frank embraces. A respected music educator, guest conductor, clinician, adjudicator, composer/arranger and publisher, Frank's career started with his playing accordion. Thank God it blossomed from there! As a student Frank was the drummer in the Olympic College Jazz Band and studied voice and conducting with Dr. Ralph Manzo. He earned a BA degree in Music Education from Eastern Washington University and an MA in Conducting and Voice from Central Washington University, where he was a graduate assistant for and studied with Dr. Wayne Hertz. Following positions at Weatherwax (Aberdeen) and Mountlake Terrace high schools, DeMiero founded the music program at Edmonds Community College where he established and directed the Soundsation jazz choirs and was Music Department Chairman for 11 years. He was Director of Vocal Jazz Studies at the University of Washington for two years. In 1998 DeMiero retired as the Supervisor of Music for Edmonds School District, where he had served for 13 years. Currently, DeMiero conducts and manages the renowned Seattle Jazz Singers. He is also the conductor/artistic director/founder of the 110-voice Sno-King Community Chorale. DeMiero is also the owner of Sound Music Publications (www.smpjazz.com), a publishing company that offers the best in all areas of vocal jazz literature, recordings, choral clinics/workshops and materials. The Frank DeMiero Jazz Camps welcomed more than 6,000 students and educator participants as well as many of the world's great jazz artists and mentors during its 25-year journey (1976-2000). Since 1977, the DeMiero Jazz Fest has become the premier non-competitive jazz choir festival, and also features the world's finest jazz musicians on its evening stage. March 10-12, 2016 the DeMiero Jazz Festival will celebrate its 40th anniversary. DeMiero's concert and jazz choirs have received top honors for their performances throughout the United States, Canada, Central America and Europe, performing with many great artists including Joe Williams, Anita Kerrr, Carmen McRea, Mark Murphy, The Hi-Lo's and The Four Freshmen, and toured with Bob Hope. To acknowledge Frank's contributions, the city of Edmonds honored him with the Community Service Award in 2007, the Edmonds School District presented Frank with the 2009 "Celebrating Edmonds Music" Community Partner Award, and in 2010 KSER-FM, an independent public radio station, granted Frank their "Voice of the Community Award" for outstanding cultural impact. Frank was inducted into the Washington Music Educators Hall of Fame, and was honored with the 2013 Washington State American Choral Directors Leadership and Service Award. DeMiero served on the Advisory Council for the International Association of Jazz Educators and was a long-time voting member of the Grammys. He currently is a member of WMEA, NAfME, ACDA and JEN. Frank and his wife, Yvonne, live in Edmonds, Wash.

About Frank DeMiero

Ask his peers, and they'll tell you that Frank is the reason vocal jazz is alive today in America's schools. Ask the performers that he's worked with - Bob Hope, Bill Cosby, Bobby McFerrin, Carmen McRae, Dianne Reeves, Joe Williams, Take 6, the Hi-Los, the New York Voices, the Four Freshmen, and Mark Murphy, just to name a few - and they'll tell you that his choirs are some of the finest in the world. Ask his former students, and they'll attribute their personal and professional successes to his tutelage. Ask his current students, and they'll tell you that there is something magical about how he creates a sense of family in his ensembles. Ask his kids and grandchildren, and they'll tell you that there's no one more loving or caring in their lives.
The Friends of Frank DeMiero Jazz Festival exists to honor this living legend, and to ensure that his spirit and educational philosophy continue to inspire young people throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Frank began developing his teaching philosophy when, in 1967, while teaching at Mountlake Terrace High School (in Mountlake Terrace, Wash.), he transformed his show choir into one of the world's first high school jazz choirs.
He went on to found the music department and the Soundsation Jazz Choir at Edmonds Community College, which quickly became internationally known for its unparalleled musical excellence.
And when he founded the Frank DeMiero Jazz Camp in 1976, there's no way Frank would have known that he would touch the lives of more than 6,000 student and educator participants. For 25 years, the camp attracted a who's who among its faculty and artists in residence.
In 1985, Edmonds School District #15 hired him to be its Supervisor of Music. During his 13 years in that position, Frank took a program that had just a few hundred students participating in music, and transformed it into a world-class department, where more than 10,000 students, in grades kindergarten through 12, participated in instrumental and vocal music programs.
Frank also served as the Director of Vocal Jazz Studies at the University of Washington for two years, was on the Advisory Council for the International Association of Jazz Educators, served as President of the Puget Sound Music Administrators Association, the Sno-King Music Educators, the Washington Chapter of the International Association of Jazz Educators and was the Northwest Coordinator for IAJE. He is a voting member of the Grammys.
Currently, Frank conducts and manages the Seattle Jazz Singers, one of the most exciting professional jazz choirs in the country today, and is the conductor of the Sno-King Community Chorale.
Frank is the co-founder of Sound Music Publications, a publishing company that offers the best in all areas of contemporary choral literature, recordings, and choral clinics.
Frank and his wife, Yvonne, live in Edmonds, Washington, where Frank received the Community Service Award in 2007.
