We've got the means, we've got the talent, now mark your calendars to celebrate JMC Going Live!
If you’ve been mourning the cancellation of your favourite upcoming events and festivals since our lockdown situation began, you are not alone. While we can’t all be together in person and push our way to the front of crowds, artists are still giving us the chance to enjoy their talent by “going live” on their socials.
Our JMC students are missing the stage and the supporters and we miss hearing them too. Thanks to the wonderful world of social media, JMC is proud to announce our Live Instagram Event from the living room venues across the country. Get the chance to listen in on live sets performed by JMC artists from across the country!
How it is going to work is, we will kick off at 6pm and ask everyone to tune into the first artist - Red Radaza via their Instagram @redradaza - once you are in you can follow around all the artists as a new one will start every 20 minutes.
