Internationally renowned National Youth Jazz Orchestra returns to DMU for the second year running on 17 March, 3pm at The Venue.
The 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 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.
They will be performing a variety of well-known jazz classics alongside brand new commissions from some of today's most exciting composers, with guest appearances from DMU Jazz Band and members of Leicestershire Music Service Big Band.
