Meantime Jazz

a

Background

I am particularly proud to run the Meantime Jazz Orchestra. Open to all ages and abilities the focus of the Meantime ensemble is jazz and improvisation. The group meets on Monday evenings at Blackheath Halls on a 5 week on 2 week off basis, the first 4 weeks being rehearsals for a small gig on the 5th week.

Repertoire And Performance

A large part of the music we play and perform comes from the jazz standard repertoire however we do like to introduce some variety and have played latin, african, funk as well as gospel influenced music. We are always open to new ideas and have recently performed pieces composed by members of the group.We are always on the look out for more performance opportunities and recently performed at the Blackheath Halls Christmas concert to over 400 people.

Friendly Atmosphere

The group has a friendly and encouraging atmosphere. There is no pressure on anyone to solo or improvise if they don’t feel comfortable and players are welcome to sit in and take a solo when they feel happy. For more information vist the Blackheath Halls website.
