A wonderful opportunity to enjoy and share your love for the sound of the Big Band. We’ll cover a wide range of repertoire under the expert guidance of Paul Eshelby, trumpeter with the BBC Big Band, who has played with everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Phil Collins via Shirley Bassey. We’re looking for saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass and drum players of at least Grade 6 standard, and we’ll be working alongside the Big Band Singing Summer School (piano and bass players should be able to read music and chord symbols). We begin at 6.30pm on the first day and finish after breakfast on the final day. Entry to the A Night of Jazz concert on Thursday 25 July is included in the course fee.
