The Huddersfield University Big Band is back once again at the LBT for its annual showcase.


The concert, a firm favourite with audiences, promises an evening of vibrant tunes – from the golden days of the Big Band tradition in the 1930s and 1940s right up to the present day.


Featuring a number of new songs as well as some old favourites spanning the history of jazz, including Artie Shaw's Clarinet Concerto starring George Winsall, some vocal numbers with Emma Whisker and Emily Mooney and small ensemble pieces as well, there'll undoubtedly be something for everyone.


The programme will feature music by Phil Collins, Pat Metheny, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Buddy Rich. This is an annual treat not to be missed.
