The exclusive lunchtime event this week will be another World Music Workshop led by Shanti Jayasinha (1.10pm in the Emma Cons Hall). Shanti has been teaching at CYM for ten years and is a leading exponent and workshop leader in jazz and world music (visit his website http://www.shantijazz.com/ ).
“We will be exploring a beautiful Indian Raga called Charukeshi and some Konokol, which is South Indian rhythmic language. Then we will travel across to West Africa and play some Afrobeat music with a serious groove.
All welcome, melodic instruments, harmonic instruments and percussion instruments.”
Shanti will be delighted to have parents/carers along to observe, and indeed students who are feeling shy about playing are also welcome to watch and listen.
This is a great opportunity to get a taste of a potential addition to the CYM curriculum so come along and see what’s on offer!
CYM piano and clarinet student Emily Hazrati has been chosen as one of the 10 winners in the Royal Opera House’s annual fanfare competition!

All the winning fanfares will be used instead of the bell for the next season before every main stage show. hear her fanfare at this link:
