TVMS Area Coordinators Jud Down and Phil McFarlane have started a new swing band called The Jazz Collective. The Middlesbrough Jazz band meets every Wednesday evening from 6pm to 8pm in Middlesbrough Town Hall and plays a variety of jazz and jazz-funk classics. Not to do things by halves, the ensemble will be making its concert debut in the Middlesbrough Jazz Festival and will be working alongside the National Jazz Youth Orchestra.
Membership is free to TVMS students and £13 per month to others. Call 01642 603600 for more information.
