Girls in Jazz Day 2021
Jazz, Masterclass/Artist Conversation
Guildhall invites young female instrumentalists and vocalists aged 11-18 to an exciting day of practical workshops led by bassist Amy Baldwin, vocalist and radio presenter Claire Martin, jazz/soul singer and songwriter Zara McFarlane, Guildhall tutor and pianist Nikki Iles and saxophonist and composer Josephine Davies exploring improvisation, jazz standards and women in jazz. The day will feature a performance by the fantastic workshop leaders and culminate in an informal sharing performance in Milton Court Concert Hall.
Girls in Jazz Day participants are invited to watch an open rehearsal by the Guildhall Big Band ahead of their evening performance with special guest director Josephine Davies.
All abilities, instruments and levels of experience are welcome with groups to suit this. Experience in jazz performance is not essential.
