JMI Youth Big Band + NYJO Academy Big Band at JW3
Sunday 4th December | 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
The JMI Youth Big Band return to JW3, performing alongside the National Youth Jazz Orchestra Academy Big Band in a dynamic double-header. Two incendiary young groups combine to deliver a powerful punch of Big Band and Jewish music for the festive season.
The JMI Youth Big Band is radical Jewish music for the next generation, led by inspirational Musical Director Sam Eastmond (Spike Orchestra, John Zorn), composer of the Ivor Novello nominated Brit-ish suite (commissioned by the PRS Foundation and JW3 in 2019 for the New Music Biennial festival).
The National Youth Jazz Orchestra Academy Big Band is a group of young and gifted musicians coming together to learn, play and celebrate the music of Jazz giants such as Ellington, Basie, Maria Schneider, Stan Tracey and many more.
