EFG London Jazz Festival
Since 2008, EFG has been a supporter of the London Jazz Festival, the UK’s largest annual celebration of jazz that takes place every November. In 2013, we became the headline sponsor of the Festival, which is now known as the EFG London Jazz Festival.
The EFG Excellence Series forms part of the EFG London Jazz Festival and is a programme of world-class performances from some of the leading lights in jazz. In recent years, it has featured concerts from performers including Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Kurt Elling, Courtney Pine, Gilberto Gil, Cleo Laine & John Dankworth, McCoy Tyner, Alison Krauss, Abdullah Ibrahim & Ekaya + Hugh Masekela, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Paolo Conte.
EFG also sponsors various concerts in partnership with leading Singapore-based jazz pianist Jeremy Monteiro. We now support jazz across Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan and China.
In the UK, EFG has been the principal partner of the Southbank Sinfonia since 2009. This unique orchestra provides a springboard into the orchestral profession for talented young musicians. Each year, 32 graduate musicians are given the opportunity to spend 9 months playing with the orchestra and performing in order to gain valuable professional experience.
In 2013, EFG established a partnership with Benjamin Grosvenor, winner of the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award 2012. This is designed to assist the pianist in the development of his international career during the next years.
Benjamin Grosvenor is an extraordinary talent that has been recognized around the world. He has achieved much in a short space of time, and there is much more to come as he continues his remarkable musical journey.
