“Copus is always an uplifting experience.”

COPUS is a theatrical spoken word jazz ensemble who weaves together dynamic poetics with lush musical landscapes across multiple genres. Originality at its utmost best!
COPUS – an acronym for Creation Of Peace Under Stars – was founded by renowned poet/spoken word artist Royal Kent and ASCAP Award-winning composer Wendy Loomis. COPUS has performed at festivals, clubs, and galleries throughout the U.S. including such prestigious venues as the San Francisco Jazz Center, Feinstein's 54 Below and The Bitter End in New York, The World Bank in Washington DC, and The Cutting Edge Festival in New Orleans. In December 2022 they will be performing at Lincoln Center in New York City.
