The Nottigham Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) perform at Peggy's Skylight.
NB: Tickets are £3 a the door - no advance tickets.
Notts NYJO exists to enable young, talented local musicians, of school or secondary college age, to develop their shared interest, skill & enjoyment in playing & performing jazz. With an emphasis on live performance, NYJO players develop lots of practical life skills too, such as time management and presentation, in addition to honing their craft of jazz musicianship through playing alongside other gifted players.
NYJO players develop their performance abilities, including improvisation, in weekly sessions and through gigs. NYJO is a friendly and well-focused group where the ethos is on supporting each other. The high quality of NYJO’s musical entertainment and the band’s enthusiasm at gigs has been noted, for instance by judges at national competitions as well as audiences entertained by NYJO.
NYJO has received widespread praise for its enthusiasm and professional approach when performing in public.
“I can't emphasise enough how delighted we were with NYJO’s performance. We were so impressed by the quality and professionalism of your young musicians and it was fantastic to see how much they enjoyed what they were doing.”"
