Big Band and Jazz Concert

The College's Big Band presented an evening of jazz classics to an audience of parents, staff and pupils.

On Tuesday evening, the Big Band delighted an appreciative audience with an impressive array of big band and jazz classics. The evening showcased some of the finest musical talent within the College and was a fitting close to the school musical careers of some of our departing Upper Sixth jazz musicians. The concert included pupil-led jazz ensembles and an impressive vocal performance from Katie Evans who accompanied the band for Nina Simone’s Feeling Good.
