ABOUT

The Yeats Project is a contemporary chamber jazz group that features the poetry of William Butler Yeats.

With original music and arrangements by Sarah Jerrom, the featured poems reflect upon themes such as spirituality, life as an artist, death, defeat and love.

The group’s 9-piece instrumentation is comprised of strings, woodwinds, brass and a traditional jazz rhythm section with vocalist Jerrom leading the ensemble.

Blending the elements of jazz, improvisation and classical music, the Yeats Project presents the words of W.B. Yeats set to music in a completely unprecedented style and approach. This distinctive interpretation and the ensemble’s unique combination of instruments played by a specially formed group of top-flight multi-influenced musicians makes the Yeats Project a rarity in terms of concept and sound.

This St. Patrick’s Day, the Music Gallery provides a better alternative than nauseating green beer: the thought provoking and spiritually-minded Yeats Project, created by Sarah Jerrom. The church sanctuary of St. George The Martyr is the place to be for a more substantial bill of St. Patricks Day fare than you’re likely to find anywhere else.
