Quintet; delivers a mix of classic vocal jazz a cappella and contemporary harmony.  Comprised of an eclectic and seasoned cadre of music professionals, the 5-voice group features first-class, modern arrangements of the Great American Songbook’s finest composers.


Having met in college as fellow colleagues, students, and the latter, an instant bond was formed out of a mutual passion for classic literature, jazz harmony, and fine a cappella singing.  Lead soprano, Christine Tamer, offers an uncompromisingly pure solo voice and technique that is the hallmark of Quintet’s sound.  Alto, Jacqueline Duryea, is a highly sought-after vocalist and performer in NY where she has recorded and performed with the leading club-date acts for over a decade.  Tenor, Stephen Gleason, is a college professor, veteran NYC guitarist, vocalist and music director who lends-a-hand in arranging and curating the group’s repertoire.  Baritone, Marc Silverberg, is a denizen of the contemporary a cappella scene, renowned clinician, and newly minted choir director with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things “a cappella”.  Virtuoso pianist and bass, Yuki Yamaguchi, cultivated his early career accompanying opera singers in Japanese conservatories.  He is now celebrated as a NYC jazz recording artist, regularly performing in top NYC venues, such as Birdland and The Blue Note.
