Date: Thu, 19 Apr 2018, 13:00 - 14:00
Venue: The Venue, DMU, 20 Western Boulevard, Leicester, LE2 7BU
A great opportunity to bring your school class to experience live Jazz performed by some of the best young musicians in the country.
During the hour-long concert, they'll tap their toes to all sorts of groovy jazz rhythms and learn more about each of the instruments and their role in creating swinging Music. Accompanying the concert will be a digital resource pack, to help you get creative with Music in the classroom. It will include games and exercise relevant to the KS2 curriculum and playlists & interviews for your class to find out more about Jazz.
Every Jazz fan remembers their first gig, the one that sparked a lifelong love of Music: Sinatra at the Sands, Armstrong at the Cotton Club…or the National Youth Jazz Orchestra Live in Leicester!
NYJO is made up of 23 of the UK's best young musicians and is led by Artistic Director, Mark Armstrong. In this special KS2 concert, they will lift the lid on how Jazz works.
Advance booking for the concert is essential and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
The cost is heavily subsidised at £10 per class of approx. 30 children.
To book tickets, please email email@example.com including your school name, contact details and the number of tickets required.
Please note: due to the very high demand for places and to ensure that as many school children are able to enjoy these concerts, we cannot guarantee that schools can bring more than one year group to the concert.
We will endeavour to fit everyone in as best we can and will be in touch as soon as possible, should there be any issues with your booking request.
