YOUNG musicians entertained jazz lovers in an annual performance at Uttoxeter Town Hall.
Mayoress Hermione Montgomery hosted ‘An Evening of Jazz’ at Uttoxeter Town Hall on Saturday, March 1 which involved performances from a collection of talented jazz musicians from across the county.
The Staffordshire Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO) put on a ‘fantastic’ performance, conducted by Nigel Beer a senior lecturer in music and popular music at the University of Wolverhampton and supported by Entrust formerly Staffordshire Performing Arts.
Mrs Montgomery said: “After the success of last year’s Jazz Concert, I was so impressed, I felt it was important to make it an annual event to be brought to the town hall to be enjoyed by lovers of Jazz and hopefully those new to this genre of music.”
SYJO were supported by the Jazz Trio from Uttoxeter Musicians Centre.
The trio formed by musicians from Oldfields Hall Middle School and Thomas Alleyne’s High School, demonstrate that jazz music has a very healthy future with the younger generation.
Mr Beer also performed together with fellow professional musicians to bring to Uttoxeter town a complete jazz experience.
