Oxford University Jazz Orchestra x Oxford Gargoyles

Grove Auditorium, Magdalen, Oxford, OX1 4AU
Thu 13th June 2019 8:00PM
Commissioned by Oxford University Jazz Orchestra and the Oxford Gargoyles, ‘The Floating Boy’ is a thrilling and deeply moving suite for big band and voices composed by Harry Baker, Oxford graduate and former Musical Director of the Gargoyles. Set to poetry by Max Thomas and poets through the ages, ‘The Floating Boy’ is a testament to the hopes, joys and sorrows of growing up, exploring themes of childhood dreams, young love, grief and acceptance. This exciting work - and the rare collaboration between two of Oxford’s foremost jazz ensembles - is not one to be missed: head on down to Magdalen Auditorium at 8pm on 13th June for a one-off experience!


HARRY BAKER is a pianist and composer with an equal passion for classical performance and for jazz and improvisation. A key player on the UK jazz scene, Harry has featured as a bandleader and sideman at the 606 Club, Pizza Express Jazz Club and The Empire Bar. As a composer and arranger of choral and vocal music, he has written works for the Choirs of Merton and Magdalen College Oxford, SANSARA chamber choir, and the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, with whom he is a Young Composer.
