ALL AGES WELCOME!(SIBLINGS TICKETS ARE SOLD ONLY AT THE DOOR) We take the Jazz Playground for A Night At The Opera celebrating one of the iconic bands of the 20th Century. While primarily known as a Classic Rock outfit, we discover that much like Jazz itself, Freddy Mercury and co drew influence from a wide variety of styles and genres in writing their cult classics. We Will Rock You with songs from albums such as A Day At The Races, News Of The World and of course the 1978 classic Jazz. Presented by a live band, The Jazz Playground introduces the instruments and core concepts of jazz through familiar songs, sounds and rhythms. We explore history, language and diversity through an organic and participatory jazz performance featuring a rotating roster of guest teaching-artists. Each class will introduce a new instrument or style, and will take a trip to different places or times in history to explore how jazz shaped modern music in the 20th century onwards. Above all, The Jazz Playground invites children of all ages to find their own creative space, develop their imagination and to collaborate through music.
