Best of Young Jazz is back!
We're delighted to announce that Best of Young Jazz 2012 has been given the green light! Funding is still being confirmed, but we have the backing of the Jazz Festival and several successful bids under our belts.
The Best of Young Jazz venue at the Upton Jazz Festival will once again be packed with all the hottest young jazz talent from across Worcestershire and beyond: school bands; groups and soloists; as well as some exciting up-and-coming young professionals. There will also be workshops each day and jam sessions to end the evenings with a swing!
We'd love to meet any new musicians who are interested in playing jazz. Auditions will be held on Saturday 5th May at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester - visit the website at www.uptonjazz.co.uk/boyj.html to download an application form. Deadline for applications to audition is Monday 30th April.
As well as everything that's happening at the Festival, we have some exciting extras planned for this year, including extra performance opportunities at some of the Three Counties Showground's biggest shows. 'Jazz Sundays' will run at the RHS Spring and Autumn Garden Shows and the Three Counties Show between May and September this year. If you're interested in getting out there, showing what you can do and flying the flag for Best of Young Jazz across Worcestershire, then let us know by filling in an application form or contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't wait to hear from you!
