Jazz at Lincoln Center & Young Jazz East

Client Barbican

As part of the Jazz at Lincoln Centre residency, Barbican Guildhall worked with young musicians from East London, Guildhall students and Head of Guildhall Jazz, Martin Hathaway. Working closely with the Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning team we made this film following Young Jazz East from the rehearsal room to the Barbican stage.

Shot over four dates and with a very tight turnaround we spent time with the young musicians, Guildhall students and members of the Jazz at Lincoln Centre Orchestra to find out the importance of jazz music education and the inspirational power of jazz for the young people through playing music.
