The WYO Jazz Group continues the popular jazz - fusion project started as a socially-distanced ensemble group.
What and when? This is combo-style ensemble, with a maximum of 15 players, and will run from 5.45 - 6.55pm on Friday evenings at Castle Street during WYO term time (resuming from September 2021). The core musical material is jazzy in nature, but also leans into world folk melody, Latin & flamenco rhythms, rock n roll, and even classic pop tunes, arranged and fused together creating a unique sound and feel .
Who can join? Existing members of the group are invited to rejoin along with new members from the main orchestra. It would be great to introduce some new sounds and ideas to the group .
Although we don`t specify any particular technical standards , interested players should feel confident on their instrument, which may or may not be in the 'classic' jazz tradition . Electric & electronic instruments / sounds are encouraged, as are any singers or other vocalists .
What does it cost? Membership of the jazz group is included in WYO subs.
