[Free gig] Student Jazz Ensembles @ Royal Academy of Music, Marylebone

  • Feb 18, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

There are six of these sessions:

Tuesday 11th February 6.00pm. First-year and third-year jazz ensembles perform.

 

Tuesday 18th February 6.00pm. Second-year and fourth-year jazz ensembles perform.

 

Thursday 20th February 6.00pm. Postgraduate jazz ensembles perform.

 

Thursday 20th March 6.00pm. First-year and third-year jazz ensembles perform.

 

Tuesday 25th March 6.00pm. Second-year and fourth-year jazz ensembles perform.

 

Thursday 27th March 6.00pm. Postgraduate jazz ensembles perform.

There is a wide variety of music performed some are original student works and all styles are performed.  Some of the avant garde sets won't be to everyone's taste.  Two bands each play a set with an interval in between and it is an idea to enquire on the students what is being played.  I sometimes leave after the first set.  I won't be able to attend all.  If I'm there I have a sign so maybe other attendees could informally host. I used to make these gigs more formal and reserve seats but there were too many no shows so turn up 15 mins before to get a seat.  Durations are approximate.  After the gig there is a large Wetherspoons next to Baker St Tube which has a good selection of beer and wine!

All dates: Free, no tickets required

    Glad people had a good time - I went to these session a few time last year and they're really strong. Do make an effort to keep out for all your other meetup members at future gigs here

    Thank you for organising, Martin, I enjoyed the second set so much more than the first. It was more an enjoyable and skilful performance rather than a showcase of skilled performers.
    It was lovely to meet you all.

    Tomorrow evening I shall try to find a group of seats together when I get there (5:45pm), so please make your way to the basement concert room, where I shall be with a meet up notice.
    The music will be:
    Second-year students perform new arrangements from Gareth Lockrane’s albums ‘The Strut’ and ‘No Messin’, including: Dark Swinger; Plan B; Minor Move; Memories In Widescreen; One For Junia.

    Fourth-year jazz ensembles perform pieces from Tim Garland’s very latest Lighthouse recording. Programme to include Farewell to Ed (for Ed Blackwell) and Lammas Days.

    I look forward to seeing you there. If you are late or can't find us, just find somewhere to sit and we will regroup at the interval.

    Hi all, it looks like I am the host for the evening as Martin is unable to make this night.

    I will carry a red meet up sign, but hopefully you will recognise me anyway.

    I am really looking forward to the evening. See you there.
