Don't underestimate just how lucky we are to have Leeds College of Music in our city. Most of these young musicians have been appearing at gigs, events or jam session in Leeds over the past three years. It's been our pleasure to hear them play and develop and now have an opportunity to perform their final assessment pieces in front of a live jazz audience, ie you! Hear the stars of tomorrow today at Seven Arts. (Abbie Finn pictured)
