CoLA Jazz Band Awarded

The CoLA Jazz Band performed at the Guildhall on behalf of the HR and Business Services Department to entertain guests at a Awards Ceremony.

Ms Janet Fortune, Head of Corporate HR and Business Services was extremely impressed with the Jazz Band, not only for its excellent performance, but for the behaviour of our students.   Previous performances were carried out by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the soul/funk band from the City Academy, Hackney.

Ms Fortune visited CoLA to present the Jazz Band and its leader, Head of Music—Mr Hollands, with a cheque in support of the Music Department.  The Jazz Band were delighted with the award and look forward to working with Mr Hollands as to how the money will be used.

Thank you to Ms Fortune and the City of London Corporation for the generous award.
