Sistema’s Big Band in a Day

We sent Pete Long (Ronnie Scott’s Orchestra MD & BBIAD tutor) to Shrewsbury, where he gave an introduction to jazz & improvisation workshop to 60 young musicians coming from the Sistema England charity.

Sistema England is a charity founded by Julian Lloyd Webber that seeks to transform the lives of children, young people and their communities through the power of music making, as part of the international El Sistema movement.
