Sophia Perlman and Adrean Farrugia both like lots of different kinds of music. And they like playing jazz most of all.
Sophia likes jazz because she gets to use her imagination, and never has to sing a song the same way twice. Adrean likes jazz because he gets to improvise and compose music on the spot.
And most of all, they like jazz because it’s fun to play music with other people. They hope you’ll all come and make music too.
