‘I’ve never seen a situation where JLCO are not inspiring the people in the room around them’
In the lead up to the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra residency this June, Barbican Guildhall worked with young musicians from East London, Guildhall jazz musicians and Head of Guildhall Jazz, Martin Hathaway to create a fantastic performance in our Hall.
We spoke to our Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning team, JLCO musicians and the young musicians themselves, about the importance of jazz music education and the inspirational power of jazz for the young people through playing music.
The performance took place on Tue 1 July 2014.
We follow Young Jazz East from the rehearsal room to the Barbican stage.
