We work with a wide group of professional musicians, aged 18-25, to bring jazz and adjacent genres to audiences around the country. Our artistic offer is varied and can be adapted to your needs: from smaller, artist-led trios to jazz orchestras and everything in between. Most importantly, we welcome your ideas too!

Whether you’re a local promoter, a renowned jazz venue, an up-and-coming music festival, or someone looking to bring a corporate event to life, by booking NYJO you are joining a community of likeminded partners, working together to nurture the next generation of jazz musicians.

Please get in touch with us at [email protected] to discuss your event.
