Renowned British jazz saxophonist and composer Iain Ballamy will feature as soloist and director with Chetham’s Big Bands in a programme of his own music. Described as urbane, original, freethinking and uncompromising, Ballamy’s work is contemporary with both strong jazz and classical references unencumbered by formality or tradition.

Chetham’s Jazz department has produced some of the rising and established stars of the UK jazz scene, from pianist and composer Gwilym Simcock to young band Jam Experiment, who recently made their debut at Wigan International Jazz Festival with songs from their debut album.
