Wynton Marsalis to perform in
London as part of 2012 festival
The London Olympic Arts Festival is all
set to fire out of the blocks in London this July, offering
a range of dazzling events from the arts to act as the
perfect accompaniment to the Olympic Games.
There's a sprawling collection of
entertainment to choose from, with live music, theatre,
dance and the arts all celebrated during the 17 day event.
One of the events on offer is the Wynton Marsalis' Swing
Symphony, with the legendary American trumpeter sure to get
the crowds in the festive spirit with his infectious tunes
from the evolution of swing.
Igniting his passion with jazz music
from a young age, the formidable performer became the
youngest person ever to be admitted into the prestigious
Tanglewood's Berkshire Music centre when he was just 17. He
went on play as part of the Jazz Messengers, joining the
likes of Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie and other jazz legends
to have been apart of the group.
Be sure to catch Wynton in action at
the Barbican Centre on 25 July. If you happen to be staying
in any of the
London hostels, be sure to rock by and catch the action.
