Aberdeen Jazz Festival Orchestra performs The Doric Suite

Aberdeen Jazz Festival Orchestra
Part of Aberdeen Jazz Festival 2024
Fountainhall Church at the Cross

In this unique project, the inspirational Richard Michael will create a brand new festival orchestra, in which classic Big Band instrumentation meets the skirl of traditional fiddles.

This one-of-a-kind ensemble will perform his ‘Doric Suite,’ inspired by the countryside around Inverurie. The performance will bring together numerous community music groups from across the city, including Jazz at the Blue Lamp Community Jazz Big Band plus players from SC&T, Aberdeen Music Service and Aberdeen Jazz Festival Youth Ensemble alongside The Struttin' Futrets - the North East’s leading trad jazz band. 

The festival is also issuing an exciting open call for fiddle players of at least Grade 4 standard to take part (email via contact page). Come and witness the results of this wonderfully open and welcoming collaboration!
