Details

NYJO is a glittering showcase for the UK’s finest young professional jazz musicians, combining a hard-swinging rhythm section and a raft of hugely talented soloists, to bring you the very best in British big-band jazz. Under the Artistic Direction of Mark Armstrong, the 23-piece orchestra perform around 40 concerts a year nationally and internationally, and aim to inspire the next generation of young jazz musicians with education work wherever they tour. Over its 53-year history, NYJO has helped launch the careers of many of the country’s most renowned jazz musicians including Guy Barker, Amy Winehouse, Mark Nightingale, Gwilym Simcock and Mercury Award Nominee Laura Jurd.

NYJO’s recent highlights include a highly acclaimed appearance at the BBC Proms in August 2018, and a collaborative concert tour in September 2018 to Germany and Holland with their German and Dutch national youth jazz orchestra equivalents BuJazzO and NJJO entitled Three Nations Under One Groove.
