JAZZ UNITES THE HOUSE AS YAMAHA HONOUR 2011 JAZZ SCHOLARS

The hugely successful, high-powered and influential partnership between Yamaha in association with Jazzwise, PPL and the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group celebrated the fifth year of its jazz scholarship programme at the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group's annual ‘Summer Jazz’ event in association with Jazzwise and PPL in the Atlee Suite, Portcullis House, House of Commons on Wednesday 13th July. Following an inspired performance by the Joe Stilgoe Trio, six winners representing the cream of young British jazz talent put in an exceptional performance, after being nominated for special consideration by the heads of jazz at six of the UK’s leading conservatoires. Award winning Jazz FM presenter Helen Mayhew and Yamaha Music Education Manager Bill Martin presented scholarships to Nick Costley-White, a guitarist studying at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama; pianist Chris Eldred, a student at Trinity College of Music; Chris Hyson who studies double bass at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama; drummer Jonathan Silk, a student at Birmingham Conservatoire and tenor saxophone students Riley Stone-Lonergan from Leeds College of Music and Josh Arcoleo from the Royal Academy of Music. All six scholarship winners who are about to leave college each received £1000 to help set themselves up as they embark on their new musical careers. More importantly the unique platform of a performance at the Palace of Westminster provided the opportunity to showcase their talent not only to Members of Parliament from both Houses who are interested in jazz, but also prominent invitees from the jazz community, including press, venue operators and record company executives.
