A charity whose mission is to promote jazz as an exciting, engaging and inspirational art form through world-class performances and education work, NYJO has grown from a single jazz orchestra of emerging professionals to be a multi-faceted organisation that works in jazz education at all levels, and all around the country.
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 Amy Winehouse, Joe Jackson, Sam Brown, Joe Stilgoe, Guy Barker, Laura Jurd, Mark Nightingale and the leader of the Strictly Come Dancing band Dave Arch (and most of his band members) plus music supervisor for the London 2012 Olympics Martin Koch.
