Eastbourne College Jazz Day

Holmewood House were delighted to take the Swing Bang to attend the annual Eastbourne College Jazz day.  With four other prep schools represented, the children worked extremely well together on five pieces which included Surfin’ USA and American Patrol. The children had a ‘letting off steam’ session after lunch but then went back to work and were joined by Eastbourne college students just before the concert. During the concert the Eastbourne Jazz band played two numbers including summertime which was much appreciated given that storm Gareth was battering the South Coast, and then all the students played together. The sound produced was exciting and remarkably tightly together considering the short amount of time spent on each piece. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained a great deal from the day. I would like to thank all the children for coming along and the staff and students of Eastbourne College for yet another wonderful musical experience.
