The Clark College Women’s Choral Ensemble and Vocal Jazz Ensemble will join forces to offer a concert Fri., June 8, 7:30 p.m., on the Gaiser Hall stage at Clark College, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver.

Continuing with that swing, the Clark College Vocal Jazz Ensemble will present several jazz tunes, including In the Wee Small Hours, One-Note Samba, Mercy, Rosetta and Melody Stomp before the two choirs will combine to conclude the concert with their title work, Why We Sing.
