Become a member of Essex’s top jazz orchestra!

Young jazz musicians are invited to an open audition rehearsal on Sunday 11 September at Chelmsford County High School.

Spend the day rehearsing with Essex Youth Jazz Orchestra members – find out about the music, get to know current members and work with top Jazz Musicians, Martin Hathaway and Paul Moylan.

At the end of the workshop, young jazz musicians will be invited to join either the Essex Youth Jazz Orchestra or Young Essex Jaxx depending on their jazz experience and ability.

All instruments welcome!

Both jazz music groups recently performed in Colchester and a member of the audience said:

“What a fantastic evening! This was our first taste of youth Jazz in Essex and we were truly impressed with the quality of the music we were presented with.  We were entertained by accomplished musicians of all ages and were impressed with the assured way they tackled such a wide variety of musical styles.  What really made the performance for us was the obvious enjoyment and excitement on the faces of the performers. So glad that live music is back on the calendar. Thank you young musicians and inspirational teachers.”
