NSG Jazz Cafe 2017

Wednesday was a busy day and evening in our Music Department.  Following on from the BBC 10 Pieces coaching day our Little Big Band, many of whom were involved with the BBC day, headed into Northampton to Spinney Hill Theatre to take part in a Jazz Café event hosted by Northampton School for Girls music department.   This was our second year of taking part in an event that showcases the very best in Jazz music making across the county.  Jazz ensembles from a range of schools and the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust performed.  Once again our Little Big Band entertained the audience with a varied stylish set that moved between vocal and instrumental numbers.   It also provided our musicians to listen to the County Big Band which contains some of the counties finest young jazz musicians and the grand finale included all musicians and teachers on stage performing the classic song ‘Feeling Good’.
