EDINBURGH YOUTH BIG BAND

The Edinburgh Youth Big Band is an Edinburgh-based ensemble comprised entirely of students ranging from P7 to S6. We are thrilled to have them making their debut concert with the phenomenal vocal talents of Alice Chen and Michael An, playing a wide range of recognised big band standards. Their concert will spans the decades of jazz history and influence including notable tunes from the Ellington and Sinatra eras, the high-energy rock and funk sounds of Weather Report and Pee Wee Ellis, creative takes on Latin standards, and the second line grooves of the deep American south.
