Classical meets Jazz ‘It’s All Music’ is inspired by the work of Wynton Marsalis, and is a partnership project between Hackney Music Service, Serious, and the London Symphony Orchestra

This project explores practical approaches to participation in classical and jazz music by children and young people from under-represented, culturally/ethnically diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. 

The project is musically directed by Andy Grappy, who leads a core group of jazz artists alongside classical musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra. These musicians deliver a series of workshops during weekends, evenings and holiday periods, culminating in performances at major events such as the EFG London Jazz Festival and Hackney Music Gala.

The project acts as a progression route for participants in the other LSO and Hackney projects, with further opportunities signposted to ensure legacy of engagement for these young people.
