Chichester Improvisation & Ensemble Workshops

June 15th &16th 2019 saw two JazzSmart Workshops running side by side at Chichester University. Mike Hall returned to run a fantastic jazz improvisation workshop and James Rawlinson lead a Saxophone Ensemble workshop. Everyone had a great time, including a meal and blues night in Chichester on the Saturday evening.

The ensemble played a mixture of classical and jazz repertoire including Pedro Iturralde’s Suite Hellenique which was a real challenge! Mike covered various jazz standards and showed the course participants how to begin to navigate through the world of jazz improvisation. A big thanks to Chichester University, Vandoren and Yanagisawa Saxophones for sponsoring the event.
