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.
