Jazz for Young People

Europe Jazz Network (EJN) and Vestnorsk Jazzsenter (Norway) have launched a new exciting feature on the EJN website – an online marketplace for jazz projects aimed at young audiences. The Marketplace is part of a three-year activity “Jazz for Young People” supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. It is the first database of this kind in Europe and creates a reference point that will help to further grow and professionalise the sector of music projects that use jazz and other creative/improvised music to engage young audiences and provide meaningful music and learning experiences.

HSQ were delighted to hear that both ‘How Monkey Found His Swing’ and ‘HMS Syncopation’ have been chosen to feature in the EJN online marketplace and are looking forward to having the opportunity to perform to new European audiences in the future.
