Wimbledon International Music Festival: MYJO Concert

Wimbledon International Music Festival: Jazz Series
Jointly presented by Wimbledon International Music Festival
Merton Music Foundation and Lantern Arts Centre

Lantern Arts Centre

'Jump into Jazz' Family Workshop
Saturday 15 November, Lantern Arts Centre
5.00pm - 6.30pm

This pre-concert family workshop is for young instrumentalists, singers and adults, of around Grades 1-4 (Minimum age KS2 upwards), who would like to try their hand at Jazz. Flavio Li Vigni and Soo Bishop will lead an introduction to jazz ensemble skills, where participants will learn to play two or three simple pieces from the jazz / groove repertoire. No music-reading skills are necessary, just bring your instrument and be prepared to give it a go (unfortunately we cannot accommodate pianists). Participants are warmly encouraged to stay on and hear inspiring performances from the Merton Youth Jazz Orchestra, MYJO2 and the VoiceBox youth choir.

Please note that children attending the workshop MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Jump into Jazz Workshop £5 per participant (children and adults).

An evening of the very best in big band music. Joining the Merton Youth Jazz Orchestra on stage will be MYJO2, our training jazz orchestra and the fabulous VoiceBox youth choir.

Merton Youth Jazz Orchestra

Bursting with talent, MYJO has established itself as one of the most highly regarded youth jazz orchestras in London. A key date in the calendar is its popular performances at the Wimbledon Championships where it brings its dynamic and exciting big band sound to Semi-Finals Day. As well as appearing throughout London, the orchestra has also toured Croatia, France, Italy, Norway and Switzerland, backed jazz stars including Stan Salzmann and Pete Churchill, and won awards at the National Festival of Music for Youth. MYJO received the ultimate accolade in 2009 with an invitation to appear at the 43rd Montreux Jazz Festival, one of the world’s most famous jazz festivals.

Concert £5 adults, £3 under 14s



Both events take place at the Lantern Arts Centre, Tolverne Road, Raynes Park London SW20
