We are a group of 23 young musicians at Bodmin College that form Bodmin College Jazz Orchestra led by the flamboyant and lovely Ben Vincent - music director at the college. We play a variety of music, ranging from Duke Ellington to Lady Gaga to The Beatles, quite a selection! Our experience and musical competence allow us to be available for bookings, whether it’s a birthday party, a fete, a wedding, an anniversary, or just a get together! We play as a band on a regular basis at the college for concerts, special events and annual Christmas, Easter and Summer Jazz cafes.
Who are our members?
We’re made up of 23 male and female students from the college, all in different year groups from our newest members in year 7 and 8 all the way to our most senior members in sixth form.
