Joe Thompson's Family Jazz - November

Date / Time:

26 Nov 17 16.00 - 17.00


The Conservatoire

Performing Group:

This informal session is all about the music. Bring your young ones along for a great introduction to live music, as Joe 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. 

On 26 November we are joined by local jazz hero Mark Armstrong.

This will be Mark’s third visit to Family Jazz following the success of his last two visits. As well as being a phenomenal trumpet player, Mark is the musical director of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Professor at the Royal College of music. He will be teaming up with our very own “Jazz Professor” Joe Thompson and the sublime Charlie Pyne on double bass to inspire and educate the young musicians of Blackheath, and of course to blow the roof off the building with his trumpet. Teenage musicians especially welcome.

There will be a workshop before the concert for any young musicians interested in improvising or improving their performance skills, whatever the instrument or the style of music. Limited places available. Click here for more information.
