About

National Youth Jazz Orchestra

The National Youth Jazz Orchestra (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, the NYJO bring you the very best in British big-band jazz. Under the Artistic Direction of Mark Armstrong, the 24-piece orchestra performs around 40 concerts a year nationally and internationally, and aims 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 and Mercury Award nominee Laura Jurd. In today's matinee concert at The Venue@DMU, NYJO will perform a variety of well-known jazz classics alongside brand new commissions from some of today's most exciting composers in the genre.
