Sevenoaks Swings 2018

The annual Sevenoaks Swings on 16 March saw the return of the Big Band and Jazz Band under the direction of Mr Beston and Mr Bassett with classics like Handy’s ‘St Louis Blues’, Gershwin’s ‘Summertime’ and Newley’s ‘Feeling Good’. The sheer power of the brass was contrasted beautifully with several smaller groups including the Year 10 a capella group’s debut performance of Christina Perri’s ‘Jar of Hearts’ alongside Voices’ set of more contemporary pieces.

Illness within the Barbershop quartet called for an impromptu performance; Jeremy Pui and Inci Gurun stepped in and gave us a fantastic mash-up medley of some Bruno Mars’ latest hits.

All in all, another successful jazz concert in preparation for the more intimate Jazz Club on 19 April.
