About NYJO

The National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) promotes the exciting, engaging and inspirational musical genre through world-class performances and education work.

Since its founding in 1965, NYJO has grown from a single 24-piece jazz orchestra of under 25s to a multi-faceted organization, whose mission is to level the playing field in jazz education at all levels across the country, reaching those historically left behind.

Led by Gemma Buckenham, the NYJO Jazz Ensemble (ages 11-16) rehearses weekly in Tower Hamlets to gain experience in performing in a large jazz ensemble setting and developing the technical knowledge that has been associated with the NYJO brand since its early days. The ensemble has played at emblematic venues like Regents Park Bandstand, Grosvenor Square, Ray’s Jazz Club in Charing Cross and Rich Mix.
