Calling All Young Female Jazz Musicians
Young female jazz musicians between the age of 14 and 18 are being invited to attend 4 residential workshop weekends run by the National Youth Jazz Collective and their Creative Leadership Ensemble programme.
Each weekend will focus on developing the compositions of each participant to a high level by working on improvisation, composition, leadership and performance skills. Groups will be lead by a number of highly regarded female tutors and each weekend will culminate in an informal concert.
The enrolment fee for the entire programme, encompassing the four weekends, is £200. Financial support is available in the form of bursaries (including full scholarship bursaries).
The dates of the weekends are as follows (these will be in Saxmundham) -
18th - 20th November 2016
3rd- 5th February 2017
17th – 19th March 2017
30th June – 2nd July 2017
Interested parties should register their interest by emailing NYJC Artistic Director Issie Barratt by 23rd September.
