A new jazz outreach project is to start in January 2014 for 300 children at the 8 primary schools in the Esk Valley Alliance in North Yorkshire near Whitby. The project is the result of a partnership between Jazz North, NYMAZ, Live Music Now and the North Yorkshire Music Hub.
The lead artists will be three Leeds College of Music jazz alumni and current Live Music Now artists: Tom Sherman, Sam Vicary and Ali Mac. They will also be joined by a group of assistant music leaders who will gain experience working alongside the LMN music artists. These will be Robin Porter, Matt Parkinson, Angus Milne, Declan Forde and Ben Lowman.
