As part of the Cambridge Jazz Festival’s commitment to supporting and promoting jazz in schools, three local school jazz orchestras will be taking the stage to showcase their considerable talents.
This fresh and sparky, collaborative event is a chance for young musicians to kick off an exciting day of jazz at the Storey's Field Centre, with arrangements of everything from standards to funk and ragtime to swing.
Come and support musicians of the future as they make their mark on a day dedicated to the big band sound.
All money raised goes towards sponsoring CJF jazz workshops for young musicians. This year the schools big band workshop will be led by Leeds bass player/composer/bandleader and all round musical genius Fergus Quill.
Ferg's Imaginary Big Band will also be performing in the evening - not to be missed! Tickets for the evening concert can be found here.
