Great concert with NYJO

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

Next gig is a reduced Big Band at Water Yeat on Friday 17th Feb – doors open at 7.15 for a 7.45 start.  The band is:

Saxes – Bella, Dylan, Tabi, Sophie & Jess    Brass – David, Abi, Anna, Michael, Emma & Jack    Rhythm – Emily, Erin & Adam       Vox – Connor, Tabi, Emma & Bella
