JMI YBB and NYJO: A Youth Big Band Extravaganza!
Sunday 19th December | 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Two incendiary young groups combine to pack a powerful punch of Big Band and Jewish music in a dynamic double-header.
The JMI Youth Big Band led by Musical Director Sam Eastmond (John Zorn/Spike Orchestra) is Jewish music for the next generation, returning to JW3 for a concert celebrating their fifth year, and their fourth recording Bet – We Are Here.
JMI is delighted to be sharing the bill with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra Academy Big Band – an ensemble of highly talented young musicians who come together to learn, play and celebrate the music of Jazz giants such as Ellington, Basie, Maria Schneider, Stan Tracey and many more.
