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 Mumford Theatre, 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 an evening 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 Blues & Roots Ensemble: The Music of Charles Mingus who will also perform at the Mumford Theatre later that evening.
This event is part of the Cambridge Jazz Festival.
