On Monday 27th March the Music Department had a special visit from the world renowned jazz musician Courtney Pine CBE.
It was a great honour to have him attend one of our jazz band rehearsals and Courtney enjoyed listening to the students and gave advice and inspiration to us all about our playing and working as a team. He took a real interest in each and every student.
As part of the rehearsal he helped us to produce a fusion piece between Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean and Herbie Hancock’s Cantaloupe Island which the Music Department have tweeted.
His visit was inspirational to us and most of the students involved in the jazz band will be attending his gig at the Harrow Arts Centre on Saturday 22nd April to hear him play.
Many thanks to Mrs Sandra O’Rourke for organising the event along with Mrs Neale.
