The London borough will offer 18 months of free tuition and performance
London’s Camden Borough has announced a new 18-month programme, funded by Arts Council England to encourage aspiring jazz musicians, particularly young women. They’re launching ‘Jazz Connect’ this weekend with a session at the Roundhouse, hosted by all-female collective Nerija (who were nominated for Breakthrough Act at last year’s Jazz FM Awards).
In the coming weeks, there will be more activities and singing workshops, plus a free concert and picnic on Sunday 2nd July in the grounds of Lauderdale House, Waterlow Park, with music from the participants led by Jazz FM’s Instrumentalist of the Year 2017 – Nikki Yeoh.
'Jazz Connect' brings together all the members of the borough’s partnership body - Camden Music Hub, which includes the Council’s highly-regarded Camden Music Service, The North London Music Academy, The Roundhouse, WAC Arts, Young Music Makers and local schools.
More information and contact details can be found on Camden's website.
