Worcestershire Youth Jazz Orchestra
After acquiring a strange and unfashionable obsession with Jazz and Big Band music at an early age (and in Wigan!), Georgina Jackson began her musical career working as a professional trumpet player working with many famous faces and Big Bands in Concert Halls, television and radio. Harbouring a desire to wear a posh frock rather than the same as ‘the lads’ in the band, Georgina decided to make a dash for the front mike! Georgina has since appeared with the BBC Big Band, BBC Concert Orchestra, recorded two CDs and is the resident singer with the Ronnie Scotts Jazz Orchestra. Last year, Georgina was one of the Headline performers at the International Trumpet Guild Conference in Hollywood, co-hosting the opening concert with Arturo Sandoval.
