Multi-award winner Spider Saloff’s depth of talent has led leading music writers to declare her “One of the finest jazz singers working.” She was recently featured with the prestigious Chicago Jazz Orchestra in a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, and also had the honor of performing the American premiere of a newly discovered song by the great Billy Strayhorn, “So This Is Love.” The concert she will perform, “Spider Saloff Sings Gershwin,” is one of the rare officially sanctioned acts of the Gershwin Centennial. Her CD release, “Like Glass,” not only received wide-spread praise, but Saloff’s original songs have charmed the critics. Ms. Saloff has recorded and performed with such jazz luminaries as Les Paul, Tom Harrell, Nick Brignola and Ray Drummond.

In 2012, Christopher Newport University established the Torggler Summer Vocal Institute (TSVI), a prestigious residency program for emerging young singers who wish to train with world-renowned vocal pedagogues and performers. TSVI exposes students to critical theories while developing a wide variety of essential performance skills during a two-week intensive artistic experience. All voice lessons, coaching and master classes are taught by leading performers, teachers and scholars. Skill-classes and workshops — including private lessons, vocal health, sight-singing skills, ensemble singing, diction, dance, acting, and movement and stage combat are offered. A maximum of 50 students are chosen to participate each year. TSVI is made possible by a generous gift from George and Mary Torggler, retired entrepreneurs and longtime supporters of the arts and education.
