WHAT'S ON / Resonate 2017: Jazz Night
The City of Edinburgh Council’s Edinburgh Schools Jazz Orchestra known as ESJO and Drake Music Scotland will be collaborating again this year and performing a fantastic night of Jazz. Drake Music Scotland have been working with two of Edinburgh's Special Schools, Braidburn and Pilrig Park and the Edinburgh Schools Jazz Orchestra to perform a brand new piece of work by composer Lewis Forbes - Jazz Jigsaw, commissioned by Drake Music Scotland. Featuring the latest music technology and Figurenotes notation alongside a standard big band, this unique performance is part of Edinburgh Council’s commitment to more inclusive music provision with funding from Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative. The Edinburgh Schools Jazz Orchestra will perform a variety of jazzy numbers in the second half.
