For parents and babies/toddlers (0-5s)
This joy-filled class offers the opportunity for parents to sing, dance and shake along to songs from around the world and original tunes.
Back at The Vortex for an "end of term" gig. An exciting blend of music from twenty horns, featuring jazz, african and latin grooves, under the leadership of trombone virtuoso Annie Whitehead and supported by the phenomenal bass and drums of Jennifer Maidman and Mark Huggett.
The Workshop is a regular rehearsal group which meets weekly, and holds a week long Summer School every year at the Vortex. Performances in the past year or so include The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The 100 Club, The Whitstable Oyster Festival and, of course, The Vortex.
Repertoire includes works by Dudu Pukwana, Chris MacGregor, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, West Nkosi, Zakes Nkozi, Herbie Hancock, Theolonious Monk, Barbara Snow, Diane McLoughlin, Pee Wee Ellis, Jaco Pastorius, John Bennett, Mzwakhe Mbuli and Maceo Parker, and Workshop members Peter Clark and Ric Morgan.
