The 2019-20 Guelph Youth Jazz Ensemble has been working hard on a bunch of music and is ready to share it with the community. Come join us at Silence this Saturday afternoon to hear what both of these bands have been working on! They will be playing standards, ballads, blues and some fusion. Both of these bands have come a long way since September and we are excited for people to hear what they have been cooking up!
Admission is $10 or Pay What You Can to help cover venue costs.
The GYJE believes music making is one of the keys to the development of youth.
Through exploration of the jazz language and improvised music young musicians are allowed the opportunity to create music in a relaxed and safe environment. There is no pressure to fulfill a curriculum and the students are encouraged to create music in their own way.
