Thomas Seltz, Head of Jazz and Pop, reports on fantastic visits from great performers:
The jazz pianist and singer Liane Carroll took to the stage with jazz and pop performance students on Friday 20 November 2015 for a workshop prior to her amazing performance in Turner Sims with Harvey Brough and the University of Southampton Voices in Songs in the Theme of Love. She covered areas of musicianship and performance relating to original compositions and jazz standards. We very much look forward to inviting her next year for a lunchtime recital and masterclass.
Just a week after Liane’s visit, the jazz pianist, composer and educator Julian Joseph shared his insights on a life in music with students from the music department of the University of Southampton and conducted a performance workshop prior to his “Julian Joseph’s Jazz legends” concert at Turner Sims on 27 November 2015.
