Collective

Funded by Mayfield Valley Arts Trust, Creative Collective came about when we were thinking how to reach young musicians who may be reluctant or unable to follow a traditional route to achieve in music.

Inspired by the contemporary/ crossover feel of jazz being created by new artists today, we wanted to give young people a life changing experience of ensemble music making that blurs musical boundaries and creates exciting new sounds.
