The King’s School annual Jazz Nite returns to St Wulfram’s Church in Grantham
A school music department is to host its annual ‘musical spectacular’.
The King’s School Jazz Nite will take place on Friday, January 26, from 7pm at St Wulfram’s Church, in Grantham.
Over the years, the school has worked with jazz musician Dennis Rollins to carry out the event.
He said: “Having worked in youth big band education for over 30 years, it’s always a pleasure to witness a group of young musicians who perform with such dedication and show a maturity way beyond their years.
“The King's School Big Band, expertly directed by Matt Lond, really do create musical fireworks!”
The event is the highlight of the year for the school’s music department as the students work very hard to put on a concert of very high standards.
The performance features the school’s big band, soul band, brass ensemble and many other student-led ensembles.
