University of Gloucestershire students create #CheltJazzFest 2021 magazine

Posted by on

For this year’s digital Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Magazine Journalism and Production students from the University of Gloucestershire have come together to create a go-to guide for this year’s Festival: Cheltenham Jazz At Home.

The magazine gives a great insight into what Cheltenham Jazz Festival and its associated Talent Development and Education programmes are trying to achieve, including the Keychange pledge, aiming to achieve a 50:50 gender balance for Women in Jazz by 2022.

It also features a detailed overview of what this year’s audience can expect from the Festival’s stellar line-up, featuring the likes of Gregory Porter and YolanDa Brown. Students conducted interviews with Festival artists including Cuban trumpeter Yelfris Valdés and saxophonist Lara Jones.

While the students couldn’t be on-site this year, they produced the magazine from conception through to design. Cheltenham Jazz Festival was delighted to be able to offer this talent development opportunity to University of Gloucestershire students.
