JAM's Music of Our Time concert at St Bride's Church, Fleet Street is usually an eagerly awaited annual event. Of course, the last two had to be cancelled so on Wednesday 23 March 2022, JAM presents its Music of Our Time for the first time since 2019. The event, featuring the Chapel Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, Mark Le Brocq (tenor), Onyx Brass, Simon Hogan (organ), Jane Shearsmith (actor) and Michael Bawtree (conductor), will include seven premieres.

Since JAM’s founding in 2000, each Autumn it runs a nationwide Call for Music, works written for choir, brass quintet and organ, for performance at its season launch Music of Our Time concert, in London each March.  This year the concert includes suuccessful submissions to JAM’s 2019 Call for Music by composers William Harmer, Christopher Best, Richard Peat, Kathryn Rose, and Philip Lancaster, plus a brass quintet world premiere by Janet Wheeler, winner of JAM’s first Masterclass Series 2021 and the London premiere of JAM’s 2021 commission by Jack Oades, Between the Stormclouds and the Sea.

Jack Oades' Between the Stormclouds and the Sea, for choir, brass and organ, sets words by poet Grahame Davies.  The world premiere took place in JAM on the Marsh 2021.
