local musicians of all ages and abilities quite literally Jam in the Park!

We would like to thank everyone who took part and especially those who helped to organise and set up all the equipment on the day.
Rory showed off his many talents singing and playing the guitar. He also had everyone thoroughly entertained and delighted with his Michael Jackson dance while singing Billie Jean! It was one of the many highlights of the afternoon.
The guys from the Brit School played two wonderful sets and also supported other musicians who came forward to sing and play.
All afternoon there was a mixture of musicians of all ages jamming together and having fun!
Bella has a lovely singing voice and actively participated in several of the jams. She performed several songs on her own and encouraged several other musicians to get up and sing. Here she is singing with Dalia, a member of the Twang Music Foundation Choir at Alexandra School. Singing together with others in front of an appreciative audience can be such a joyous and rewarding experience, especially for young musicians like Dalia.
When this lovely lady stepped up to the mic she surprised us all with the gift of not just one, but two exceptionally beautiful songs. With such grace and confidence, she captured the attention of the audience from the very first note. Every lyric she sang was delivered with impeccable control and a depth of expression that left listeners enthralled and enchanted. We sincerely hope she will come and perform again at some of our future events.
Our student Nathaniel played a couple of solo guitar pieces. He is also a wonderful piano player too, which we only found out when he rocked up and played during the interval of our Academy student recital. So many hidden talents amongst our students!
Our Jam in the Park events are designed to bring people of all ages together for a delightful and joyous experience. It warms our hearts to see parents and children joining in the fun, singing together and creating beautiful musical moments that will be cherished forever.
