It provides an opportunity for musicians from a range of backgrounds to work and perform alongside world-class jazz musical mentors. The ‘Creative Jazz Orchestra’ is the only ensemble of its kind in Kent; a place to try new things, create music, explore inventive improvisation and have fun, with jazz as a starting point for new music. All ages, all abilities, all instruments and vocalists are welcome to participate for free. Leadership from Musical Director Joe Browne with support from local jazz educators and mentors from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.
