JALCO returns to the Barbican!

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis returned last summer to the Barbican for some spectacular performances.  Running alongside the residency, I was invited to capture some of the educational programming.

“Each year, JALC Education produces a variety of education programmes that reach tens of thousands of participants around the world. Working together with the Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning Division, the residency programme includes a day of free workshops and jam sessions for all in East London, masterclasses with Guildhall School jazz musicians, and a project with the East London Creative Jazz Orchestra. This creative jazz ensemble is formed of up to 30 young people selected in partnership with Music Services from the ten Olympic Gateway Boroughs under the artistic direction of Band Director Paul Griffiths.”
