Summer Jazz Concert – Sunday 19th June

by Music at King Edward's School, Birmingham

The Senior Swing Band hosts another summer’s evening of jazz, featuring soloists from both schools and professional guest musicians including Joe Thompson.

After the hiatus of the pandemic it is great to return, with a thriving Swing Band under the inspired leadership of Gary Hill.

Old Edwardian, Joe has been a regular in London clubs for more years than he cares to remember, as well as being resident pianist at the world famous Ivy Club, and TV appearances. He has a number of high profile clients to his name, including royalty, all of whom are willing to vouch for his musicianship!

We are lucky enough to have him providing his services to the school on a more regular basis these days and it’s no surprise that small-group jazz, and jazz piano are thriving under his remarkable stewardship.

Tickets are available on the Ruddock Hall website at:
