NYJO & BuJazzO
Freedom & Friendship – A 100 Years of Jazz
Europe’s two leading youth big bands celebrate 100 years of jazz history. Marking the centenary of the start of the First World War, this performance brings together the official youth jazz orchestra of the Federal Republic of Germany with our own National Youth Jazz Orchestra.
NYJO are on the road currently to Germany for the first leg of a unique project with our German counterparts the Federal Youth Jazz Orchestra of Germany (BuJazzO). This will see 50 of the most talented young jazz musicians in Europe coming together to celebrate 100 years of jazz history, also marking the centenary of the start of the First World War. This is a ground-breaking collaboration between the two leading youth jazz orchestras in Europe to reflect on the significance of both these events and to set a future standard for cross-Europe youth jazz music-making.
There are three concerts in Germany this week followed-up by concerts at Leeds College of Music and the EFG London Jazz Festival in November
