Jazz For August

Classical Academy Music For Occasions


If there's ever a moment that feels right for jazz, it's those long, hot August days. So, lay back with Rights of Swing by the great Phil Woods and Big Brass with Benny Bailey. For something fun tune in to Jazz Fidler on the Roof.



Why not contrast the jazz with something completely and utterly different - but just as peaceful for summer. The birth of medieval composer Guillaume Dufay falls in the first week of August, so propel yourself back in time with Music for Courts of Avignon & Rome.



Intrigued by Dufay? Find out more about medieval music with our Academy article.
