Big Band workshop next Thursday

We are really lucky to have secured a visit from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Great Britain – one of the top youth jazz ensembles in the world. They are visiting 3 schools in Cumbria – ourselves, QKS and Trinity – but we are the only school where they are working with a single school band, the other two schools are having to open their session up to all their local secondary school musicians in order to get numbers.

The musical director and two ambassadors (as well as the head of Cumbria Music Service) will be coming into school on Thursday 11th October to lead a workshop with our Big Band from 9am-midday – names are below. If there is a problem with any of the students doing the workshop please let me know so that I can sort out who can/cannot play.
