February 2018: Trish Clowes

02 March 2018

The quartet visited St Agnes’ Community Centre for Music and the Arts (CCMA) for an afternoon/evening of activities, ahead of the first concert of the tour at The Sugar Club the following evening. The musicians facilitated separate instrumental workshops for saxophone, drums, guitar and piano, before coming together for a demonstration/question and answer session with workshop participants and other members of the community. The local coordinator particularly appreciated having musicians from the jazz genre attend the Centre, as an opportunity for local musicians/community members to explore this style of music for the first time through both instrumental tuition/exploration and conversation.

 

"All of the members of the quartet were excellent, thank you." Sr Bernadette Sweeney, CCMA
