Winners of the International B-Jazz competition as well as the prize for the best soloist, this concert is part if their European tour following the release of their new CD ‘City Birds’.
Hearing the trio is a special and unforgettable experience and you will be captivated after listening to one piece!

The course starts with a visit from Jonathan's Jungle Road Show. You will meet and handle a selection of reptiles and invertebrates as you learn about the impact deforestation is making on these weird and wonderful beasts.
