World Heart Beat & the Julian Joseph Academy Present 'The Next Generation'
The music this afternoon features young students from World Heart Beat Music Academy and the Julian Joseph Academy presenting their programme “Together We Go Forward”.
The 606 Club has always looked to the future generations of musicians and as part of that philosophy has good working relationships with a number of Schools and Academies. This afternoon we are very pleased to welcome two institutions particularly close to the 606 Club, World Heart Beat Music Academy and the Julian Joseph Academy who will be jointly presenting their programme “Together We Go Forward”. This is how they describe what they do and what to expect from the show:
“The Julian Joseph Jazz Academy and World Heart Beat Music Academy are intertwined-the partnering of both academies helps secure the shared enrichment and creation of more well-rounded young musicians who benefit through learning, gaining experience and performance opportunities. Both academy’s highlight music’s role in encouraging dialogue, combating discrimination and promoting human dignity. World Heart Beat students are exposed to specialist jazz programmes at Julian Joseph Jazz Academy, whilst Julian Joseph Jazz Academy students have the opportunity to expand their experience in classical music, orchestra and band performances, such as the 51st State Band plus mentoring opportunities. World Heart Beat’s jazz programme is spearheaded by the exemplary work of internationally renowned British jazz musicians, including pianist Trevor Watkis, saxophonist Tony Kofi and trumpeter Byron Wallen all of whom are also part of the founding faculty of Julian Joseph Jazz Academy”. The music will be a mix of standards and jazz standards and will feature many of the talented young students from the two Academies. If you want to check out the next generation of jazz musicians, this is the gig to go to!
