National Youth Jazz Orchestra Ambassadors

We welcome the return of NYJO, the UK's premier young professional jazz orchestra led by Artistic Director and trumpeter Mark Armstrong.

Together they will be performing works by bebop trumpet legend Dizzy Gillespie. Our audiences have previously thrilled to their Great America Songbook programme, followed by Legends of Jazz where they blew up a storm. This concert is kindly sponsored by Mike and Monika Lavelle.

The concert will take place at St Wilfrid's Church starting at 7:30pm.
