Joe Thompson's Family Jazz - 30th September!

Date / Time:

30 Sep 18 16.00 - 17.00


Performing Group:

This informal session is all about the music. Bring your young ones along for a great introduction to live music, as Joe Thompson and his fellow musicians play you the best in jazz and show you how it’s done – just like they’ve done at The Ivy Club the night before!

Perfect for aspiring young musicians, or families who want some quality musical time together.  This really is some of the best jazz in town, and when you pair it with an espresso from our café, makes for the hippest family scene around. 

Flute playing like you’ve never heard it!

Jose Zalba-Smith studied FLUTE in his home town of Havana, Cuba, and then at London’s Guildhall School of Music. His international concert career includes work with the National Youth Orchestra of Spain (2006-2007) Welsh National Opera, the Southbank Sinfonia, and BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Jose’s father Javier is part of the famous Buena Vista band and Jose has in turn founded his own Cuban band “Tradicional Cubano” and Latin Jazz ensemble “The Manana Collective” which performs regularly across the UK. Jose has also run highly successful Cuban music workshops at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Royal Northern College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire, Oxford Flute Summer School, Philippa Davies International Flute Summer School and The Scottish International Flute Summer School.

Joe and Jose will be joined by Conservatoire regular, and long-term friend of Jose, the wonderful Charlie Pyne on bass.
