Life after the fellowship!

It has been a long year working on my fellowship supported by Town Hall Symphony Hall and the BBC Performing Arts Fund. This all culminated with a really fun gig at the CBSO Centre on March 21st featuring my big band performing loads of new music. It was incredibly overwhelming to see the support from both the band and the music. Peter Bacon has written a great review that you can find here – http://thejazzbreakfast.com/2014/03/22/jonathan-silk-big-band/

There will soon be some recordings and videos appearing of this gig and hopefully some more dates to perform this music in the coming months!

Since the gig I have been fortunate to have some down time to process the year and studying with such amazing composers as Maria Schneider and Vince Mendoza. I have also had a break which has been much needed!
