For the past 2 years, contemporary music ensemble, Sinfonia Newydd has positioned itself at the forefront of Cardiff-based student-led contemporary arts projects, performing and promoting the new music of over 25 young Welsh contemporary composers. Now the contemporary music brand is widening its focus to contemporary jazz in the form of SN Jazz (www.snjazz.co.uk) – a new contemporary jazz online promotions website promoting the new music of Cardiff-based jazz musicians whilst empowering them to take artistic control of their own events.
The online jazz promotions strand has already begun to attract attention amongst Cardiff’s jazz scene with new Cardiff-based jazz night, Jazz Gallery being the first to sign to SN Jazz ahead of their launch on Sunday 4th March.
Sinfonia Newydd director says “The opening of SN Jazz marks a milestone in Sinfonia Newydd’s work within Wales’ contemporary music scene. I am extremely proud that Sinfonia Newydd is now broadening its reach of contemporary music performance and promotion whilst providing further opportunity to more of Wales’ young talent. Through SN Jazz, Sinfonia Newydd is truly showcasing the musical diversity that it prides itself upon.”
As well as promotional listings, the SN Jazz website will also feature news and articles on Cardiff’s contemporary jazz scene as well as special profiles on SN Jazz promoted events and the musicians involved, both on and behind the stage!
