Review: Jazz Evening

Category: Music, General, Events

One of the more informal occasions of the musical year is the highly popular Jazz Evening.

After a whirlwind (quite literally with our friend 'the beast from the east') Lent Term of musical events, this is a chance for parents, staff and pupils to enjoy a convivial evening and relax, to the tune of some inclusive, but high-quality music making.

All year groups are represented, and regular solo spotlights offer individual chances to shine, alongside the massed forces of the Big Band and the Jazz Ensemble expertly prepared and presented by Mr Arkwright and Miss Lambert.

The Marlburian lends itself very well as the venue, both as a visual spectacle and acoustically: you can literally hear every detail, and with audience seated at tables (café style) and performers on stage risers, it really is a most congenial evening.

Congratulations, then, to all the performers for producing such a fine conclusion to the term.
