WHO WE ARE
NYJO exists to empower young jazz musicians and inspire audiences across the UK, through engaging participation projects and impactful live performances. Founded in 1965, NYJO has grown from a single jazz orchestra to a multifaceted organisation that is committed to supporting and developing musicians of all styles and standards. Whether you want to become the next emerging artist or simply play for fun – we’re here for it.
NYJO’s pro-dev platform empowers emerging artists and burgeoning jazz musicians. We curate a diverse range of performance projects that actively explore the relationship between the established and the experimental, creating unique experiences to inspire music audiences nationwide.
If you’re a musician, promoter, venue, photographer, videographer or any other member of the jazz community who’d like to work with us, send us a message!
NYJO Learning nurtures young musicians through high quality workshops, courses and performance opportunities. We value access, inclusivity and progress at all levels and believe in harnessing the power of musical participation as a tool for personal growth.
If you’re an educator, parent, or young musician (14-18yo) anywhere in the UK, get in contact with us now!
We are proud to be one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations, but to achieve the full breadth of our ambitions, our work is dependent on the generosity of trusts, major donors and individual supporters nationwide.
