'We are the York Music Forum Youth Jazz Orchestra and we want to record an album by the end of Summer term 2016.
To do this we need to raise £500 to cover the cost of a professional recording engineer and to rent a suitable recording space (not a recording studio... could never afford that!) and to create CDs. We will sell the CDs to allow us to buy some decent big band music stands. We'll also use the recording to try and get on the bill of jazz festivals in the north of England.
I'll mix and master the recording (for free obv!) and we'll create something very professional-sounding indeed.
Basically, we want you to buy your CDs in advance.... £10 secures you a CD!
We don't receive any funding to run the Jazz Orchestra... rehearsal sessions are paid for by those who are in it or by their parents.
Please help us and we'll be ever so grateful!'
