Jazz Group

Prohibition is the Queen Margaret’s Jazz Group with aims to give girls with an interest in jazz and improvisation the chance to develop their skills and experience in playing with a smaller ensemble where communication and musical dialogue are paramount. The instrumental combinations change year on year, creating exciting opportunities for new arrangements and ensemble skills. The group also invites guest solo performers to work with them on special projects.

Prohibition plays at many engagements throughout the School year, including Christmas concerts, providing jazz for al fresco afternoon tea on Speech Day and Founder’s Day concerts, and many others. Their performances never fail to engage an audience in clapping and smiling.

This year, the group are also hosting an intimate jazz evening in Cellars, featuring guest soloists and jazz favourites. In addition to the experience of tuition in jazz musicianship and repertoire, girls are encouraged to develop their own improvisation style in a supportive atmosphere and enjoy bespoke arrangements of jazz standards.
