Despite the blustery weather and the threat of Storm Hannah in the run up to ‘Jazz in the Park’, on the actual day the Jazz Band were blessed with no rain, very little wind and sunshine at times. This together with the ice-cream van, bunting, marquee and a great turn out of spectators (all equipped with their picnic chairs), created a wonderful festival atmosphere before the music even began! For almost a full two hours the crowd were treated to a wide array of different musical jazz styles. The Senior School covered Swing to Funk with their Big Band as well as Dixieland and Gypsy Jazz in some of the smaller combos. There were also some great vocal numbers ranging from Aretha Franklin to Julie London. The Prep School also played a big part in this event with great renditions of Tequila and Rock around the clock to name a few. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
