Pete Churchill Workshop @ Durham on Nov. 27

On Thursday 27th November Durham University Big Band will welcome Pete Churchill to workshop a number of pieces with them.  Pete Churchill is renowned for his jazz education.  He lecturers in jazz composition at the Royal Academy of Music, and has inspired countless school children across the country with his innovative large scale singing projects.  He is the musical director of the London Vocal Project which has collaborated with Kenny Wheeler on the album 'Mirrors'.  His busy freelance career has included work for almost a decade and a half as the  British accompanist for the legendary jazz singer Mark Murphy and collaborations with, amongst others, Norma Winstone, Stan Sulzmann, John Taylor and Julian Arguelles.  He conducted the 80th birthday tour of the Kenny Wheeler Big Band which culminated in the critically acclaimed album 'The Long Waiting'.  
Durham University Big Band are delighted to be able to work with Pete.  They invite anyone who is interested to watch the workshop from the Music Department (Palace Green) Concert Room Gallery at 8pm.  Free Entry
This event is supported by PwC.
