Rise–Up is the brand new, free to access, all female jazz ensemble from Jazzlines at Town Hall Symphony Hall.
This new and exciting project is a positive step towards achieving a 50/50 gender split in the jazz sector by engaging with talented female musicians at the crucial stage in their careers by offering them high-profile mentorship from world renowned jazz musicians, giving them access to rehearsal spaces in the iconic Symphony Hall and also providing them with a platform to showcase their musical and compositional talent through concerts and access to recording studios.
Following a successful recruitment process with a panel of experts including jazz artists Trish Clowes, Alica Gardener-Trejo and Yazz Ahmed we have selected 7 exciting musicians from the region. We are currently postponing the start of project and will announce the participants of the first year of Rise -Up very soon.
We are enormously grateful to Ian Reaves for his generous support of Rise-Up.
