Next Generation Takes Over - Classical Meets Jazz

Part of EFG London Jazz Festival

Come hear young musicians perform in a showcase event where classical meets jazz.

Classical Meets Jazz is a partnership between Hackney Music Service, Serious and the London Symphony Orchestra, originally inspired by the work of Wynton Marsalis.

The project explores practical approaches to participation in classical and jazz music by young musicians from culturally/ethnically diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. They’re brought together with musicians such as Andy Grappy, Arun Ghosh, Cheryl Alleyne and classical musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra to make music.

Hear them perform at Next Generation Takes Over.

This programme is part of the #jazz100 campaign, celebrating the future of British jazz.
