Saturday will be the the 6th International Jazz Day celebrating jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. The day was initiated by UNESCO.

This brings us to focus on our Jazz clients today:

Michael Chillingworth is a London based saxophonist and clarinettist. With his debut jazz album Scratch And Sift – out on 1st July – he reminds us how inspiring everyday life is. Each track tells a story from his everyday life and finds drama in the mundane, from the freshness of a shower to cinematic villains or the poetic presentation on Japanese sweet packaging!

Kenneth Dahl Knudsen is a Danish composer and double bass player. For his debut album We’ll Meet In The Rain, which is to be released on 6th May, he gathered together an international jazz orchestra. The album weaves between contemporary jazz and cinematic orchestral music. Each piece speaks about Dahl Knudsen’s encounters with people, their stories and anecdotes.


Michael and Kenneth are definitely two artists you should keep your eye on! Stay tuned and follow them on their social media sites:

Michael Chillingworth: website, twitter

Kenneth Dahl Knudsen: website, YouTube, facebook

Both artists will release their albums on the London-based record label Two Rivers Records.

Capital Sounds is a major pan-European initiative marking the 40th anniversary of the EUYO.  The project will include concerts in every capital city of the European Union over the coming few years.  The idea behind the project is to champion unity through diversity – celebrating individual national cultures within a pan-European orchestral tradition.  The events will include keynote speeches by national leading cultural figures and joint performances with local youth ensembles, reflecting the local musical traditions of that country.

Capital Sounds will begin on the 7th August 2016 in Bratislava, for a joint celebration of Slovakia assuming the EU Presidency on the 1st July, and of EUYO’s 40th anniversary. The orchestra will then continue on to Slovenia, Poland, Germany and the Netherlands. Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko and EUYO Conductor Laureate Bernard Haitink will lead the orchestra, with repertoire to include Mozart, Haydn, Mahler and Bruckner.

One of the European Union’s great cultural institutions, the EUYO was founded as the European Community Youth Orchestra in 1976 by Joy and Lionel Bryer.  Since then it has been the leading orchestra for young musicians in the EU, providing an exceptional bridge between music colleges and the professional music world. Auditioning the best young musicians from every EU Member State is a rigorous process, taking several months every year to complete, but it means the EUYO can claim to be the only entity in Europe that represents and presents young cultural performers at a high level of excellence from all 28 EU countries.

You can find the EUYO on TwitterFacebook & YouTube
