Time: 10:30, and 12:00. 1 hour performance.
Venue: Curtis Auditorium, MTU Cork School of Music


Annual Big Band Concert for families given by the twenty-piece CSM Jazz Big Band under director John O'Connor, with guest soloist Gerard Presencer, Trumpet.


This year the CSM Jazz Big Band celebrates twenty years with our annual Family Jazz Concert on Sat 26 October at 10:30 a.m. with a repeat at 12:00 p.m. The performance lasts 1 hour.  We welcome our special guest, Gerard Presencer, one of  London's top trumpet soloists and educators – who is currently leader of the Danish Radio Big Band in Copenhagen.  This is also a landmark year in that all of the members of the band are full-time students on the CIT CSM's BMus and BA (Pop Music) degrees, showing how jazz and pop have asserted themselves as artistic genres alongside those that have flourished in the School for over a century.

All tickets for either performance are €5 and may be purchased on-line (with NO extra fees) on the terrific new CIT Events Ticketing System at


We also have a first-rate series of free workshops for instrumentalists and singers – the Cork Jazz Camp – going on from Thursday 24 to Sat 26 October. See the website for a detailed schedule.
