Lilla Akademien Residency

October 2017

A wonderful residency from the 18-strong wind ensemble from the Lilla Akademien (Junior Academy) of Stockholm.  During the week they spent the daytimes at Victoria College, performing to over five hundred children at Primary and Secondary level.

They also joined forces with the wind and brass instrument players at the school to create a giant combined band.

In the evenings they were divided into smaller ensembles along with JAM students of different ages.

All rehearsals culminated in a fantastic final concert in front of a packed audience at JAM.  We are very much looking forward to their next residency in Autumn 2018, and will be arrange a tour to Stockholm for our students to work with them in Sweden.
