NYJOS – Jazz Access


Young instrumentalists and vocalists enjoy opportunities to refine their improvisation and key solo and ensemble skills, as a step along the pathway to participation in the flagship Jazz Orchestra. They perform a wide range of big band repertoire including traditional jazz standards and more modern repertoire; through this they also learn key jazz history.

Having performed at venues across Scotland, including residencies at the Aberdeen Festival, 2016 will be the first year when Access goes on the Summer Tour with the flagship Jazz Orchestra, performing at 2 Scottish venues in July.
