Next concert: Friday, 12th April at 7.30pm: Ambassadors from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra

The National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) is a charity, whose mission is to promote jazz as an exciting, engaging and inspirational art form through world-class performances and education work.  The 24-piece Jazz Orchestra remains the gateway to the profession for many future stars of the UK jazz scene, and countless musical theatre and session musicians. NYJO’s alumni include Guy Barker, Laura Jurd, Mark Nightingale and Amy Winehouse, plus the leader of the Strictly Come Dancing band Dave Arch (and most of his band members) and music supervisor for the London 2012 Olympics Martin Koch.

A sextet of their ‘Ambassadors’ will be presenting NYJO’s Legends of Jazz programme: This programme celebrates the greatest jazz classics ever written. Featuring tunes, such as ‘Take the A Train’, by the undisputable jazz masters, such as Ellington and Monk; together with legendary modern composers, whose works are at the cutting-edge of jazz. Join us on our journey through the jazz greats!
