They will perform a short set for the audience, then welcome singers and poets to perform with them.
This workshop is suitable for for 16-25 year olds (no previous experience is necessary – suitable for beginners)

NYJO is dedicated to making jazz and creative music-making more accessible to early-career musicians, young people, and audiences across the country. Throughout our activity, we seek to create a meeting ground between the established and the experimental – the past, present, and future – to build bespoke programmes which cater to lifelong and new jazz fans.
Our main focus is the professional development of emerging artists and our Learning programme for under 18s. We work in close collaboration with likeminded partners to deliver projects that respond to local community needs and create an inclusive learning environment which centres the voices of young people.
We are proud to be an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and to work towards delivering ACE’s ‘Let’s Create’ strategy to make the arts sector more inclusive and reflective of modern Britain.
NYJO Learning nurtures young musicians aged 18 and under through high-quality workshops, courses and performance opportunities. We value access, inclusivity and progress at all levels and believe in harnessing the power of musical participation as a tool for personal growth. NYJO offers young people opportunities to grow as musicians, express themselves and have fun. We hope that young people will have lots to learn from us, and equally that we will have lots to learn from them.
