International Jazz Day @ BYETC

​International Jazz Day Performance

To celebrate International Jazz Day, which is held across the world each year on 30 April, BYETC hosted a 5-piece jazz band led by professional trumpet player and band leader Jacob Hills.

For many of our students this was their first experience of one of the most exciting and diverse musical styles. Students and educators where entertained by the vibrancy and vitality of the live jazz performance.

Between brackets, the band members engaged with students providing them with information about each of their instruments as well as a brief introduction on the origins of Jazz. Students fired back with many questions creating a natural and rewarding Q & A session.
