This time, trumpet, trombone, and saxophone players are invited to be participants – bring your own instrument and you might have the opportunity to play with the band, or even to replace PLJO member’s seats, with the scores provided in advance. It’s also open to the public to sit-in as audience. Come and sharpen your musical skills!
Alex will also be the featured soloist at the “Big Band Night - Patrick Lui Jazz Orchestra” concert at the Fringe Club that night.
