We are very excited to welcome back the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) for a series of workshops and a concert. They are one of the best Big Band Jazz groups in the country performing all over the world. Find out more.
NYJO ambassadors, 5 musicians plus their leader, Mark Armstrong, will be running workshops in Kendal, Keswick and Lancashire that will culminate in a mass concert with the 23 piece Big Band, NYJO.
Any instrumentalist of Grade 4 standard or above can apply. We welcome non-traditional big band instruments such as strings and woodwind. Places for drummers and keyboard players will be limited so please let us know if you play another instrument.
You can join either the Kendal or Keswick workshops, or both, but to take part in the concert you must attend both of the Kendal rehearsals or the Keswick rehearsal and be available to attend the rehearsal before the concert on the 20th January 2017.
