Strike Up The Band! A Mass Virtual Performance
King’s College London Jazz Society presents ‘Strike Up the Band’ (Count Basie/Sammy Nestico). The society has been working throughout lockdown on a number of virtual videos. This performance invited musicians from across the world to perform with us. ‘Strike Up the Band’ features over 80 musicians and over 100 recordings, from across four continents.
The performance features students from across King’s College London and collaborates with performers from institutions including the Royal Northern College of Music, Stanford University, University of Huddersfield, University of Birmingham, University of Durham and many others.
