Jazz Evening February 2018

Virtuoso drummer Ted Carrasco and his professional jazz band led an extraordinary afternoon of music making in a Jazz Workshop for nearly 50 students – all members of our junior and senior jazz ensembles, Big Band and Swing Band. The focus of the afternoon was on the freedom and artistry of improvisation, and the workshop culminated in a combined performance with students of all ages performing and improvising together with top-level professionals. The inspirational day was topped off with a sensational concert including student and professional performers, and special solo items from Ben Carter and Jackson Taylor.
