Chetham’s Jazz Department has gone from strength to strength in recent years, now featuring three Big Bands and a wide range of improvising ensembles. Saxophonist Alexander Bone won both the inaugural BBC Young Jazz Award in 2014 and the 2016 British Jazz Rising Star award, for which he was nominated alongside fellow alumnus Rory Ingham.

The Big Bands step up to The Stoller Hall stage with a concert featuring dynamic and diverse jazz sounds.
