We're super proud to announce Liverpool's first ever JAZZ CAMP FOR GIRLS!!!
Female musicians are under-represented in jazz education and as professional jazz performers, and access to opportunities is limited in some parts of the city region. In this project, Jazz Camp for Girls, around 30 female students from Merseyside schools are taking part in workshops led by musicians and experienced tutors from Liverpool non-profit company ParrJazz, Geni Lamb (sax and flute), Ni Maxine (vocals) and Sarah Sands (sax and arrangements).
This concert is the culmination of a collaboration between Liverpool Hope University, Jazz North and Parrjazz, with the workshops funded by Hope’s Routes to Impact initiative. Hope Big Band will perform, joined by Geni, Kaya and Sarah as guest soloists, and then the Jazz Camp for Girls students will take to the stage to perform some joint items. Admission is free and booking is not required.
