National Youth Jazz Orchestra

The National Youth Jazz Orchestra Ltd is a registered charity (no. 274578). In its 54-year history, 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. Our 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 Guy Barker, Laura Jurd, Mark Nightingale and Amy Winehouse, plus the leader of the Strictly Come Dancing band Dave Arch (and most of his band members) and music supervisor for the London 2012 Olympics Martin Koch
