After impressing the organisers last Christmas with their amazing playing, the Loreto Jazz Band was invited to perform again for an hour at Manchester Central Library’s Christmas open weekend on 10th December. There was a fantastic atmosphere with performances also by youth theatres and opera companies throughout the day. The Jazz Band were brilliant, and performed seasonal tunes such as A Big Band Christmas, Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Slade’s Merry Christmas Everybody as well as classic Jazz numbers by Duke Ellington and Herbie Hancock. The crowd were dancing and joining in with some percussion and everyone had an amazing day. Congratulations to all who performed.
