A massive well done to the 8 students who played at QKS with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra on Friday night – Abi, Michael, Jacob, Jack, Jess, Bella, Sophie & Tabi. Some great improvisations from them (Michael McCluskey – where did that stonking solo come from????) made an ageing music teacher, who wishes he was young enough to be playing in such events, VERY proud. I am sure that everyone will also agree that listening to NYJO on their own was a truly memorable experience.
The only recording I could find from QKS/NYJO was this – it isn’t just nepotism!! Copy and paste into your browser to see it. https://twitter.com/QKS_Kendal
