Rātā Studios Jazz Band

Following on from the great success of the Wellington Late Starters’ Orchestra, we are pleased and excited to be launching the Rātā Studios Jazz Band in Term 3 2020!

Following the same principles, the Jazz Band will be non-auditioned and open to adult players of all levels. Music will be arranged and provided for near beginners and to more advanced levels. This would be open to rhythm section players too, so piano, guitar, bass and drums/percussion, as well as all the usual brass and woodwind, are welcome!
