How Monkey found his Swing was first commissioned by the Dalcrose Society as an interactive children’s performance as part of the 2015 Manchester Jazz Festival. The show is a collaboration between Ursula and the Hilary Step Saxophone Quartet and is now managed by Jazz North. In 2016 it proved a hit at Birmingham Symphony Hall as part of the Musical Family Picnic Programme and also at the Just So Festival. It is energetic, boisterous and a perfect way to introduce youngsters to new sounds and unusual instruments, through movement, characterisation and lots and lots of laughter!
