City Jazz Orchestra and Singers

The City Jazz Orchestra and Singers were formed in September 1990 under the musical direction of Head of Music Kevin Tout. The musicians and singers who comprise this ensemble represent just a small percentage of the many hundreds of students who pass through our busy and vibrant music department each week.

The City Jazz Orchestra have undertaken thirty eight European Tours over the last twenty eight years, and have received an unbelievable reception whilst performing at the Cork International Jazz Festival, Ireland from October of 2004 - 2018 (consecutive performances).  The City Jazz Orchestra & Singers offers young musicians/singers the opportunity to develop their performance skills to a very high standard. The emphasis has, and always will be on the student's enjoyment of music. Our musicians develop a real confidence in themselves, and in so doing, realise their full potential.

To the Musicians/Singers involved with 'City Jazz' a million thanks and much love.
