Jazz Sounds of WW1

Last month saw our Expressions of War series take place – with three events around the UK, all looking to engage young people with commemorations of the 100th anniversary of World War One.

In Birmingham, this saw the acclaimed pianist Trevor Watkis lead the Jazz Sounds of WW1 project, whereby a group of young musicians recreated compositions from the 1914-1918 era with a day of pop-up performances across the city centre.
