Broken Jandal’s video entry was recorded at the school disco last week.
The Chisnallwood Jazz Band performed stunningly at Junior Jazz Jam on Sept 14th.
Junior Jazz Jam is an annual event for primary school jazz bands up to year 8. There were 6 bands performing this year from Medbury, North Loburn, Westburn, CSM and Christchurch South Intermediate and Chisnallwood.
The performances were listened to by top jazz educators Gwyn Reynolds, Darren Pickering and Scott Taitako and it was valuable to have their input and encouragement.
It was also great to be able to hear other young bands and perform in ARA Music Arts building.
Our band is now gearing up to play at the Christchurch Big Band Festival over Labour Weekend in Margaret Mahy Playground and ReStart Mall.
Please note there is a fantastic opportunity for any age musician to attend jazz workshops in Christchurch on October 22nd (Labour Weekend) including a fantastic Youth Big Band run by jazz maestro Rodger Fox. Register here: http://www.bigbandfest.org.nz/register/
