Formed in 2008, the NYOS Jazz Collective is a small ensemble, comprising the most dynamic and talented musicians invited from the NYOS jazz flagship ensemble and sometimes from NYOS Camerata.
The Collective lineup is flexible in order to facilitate various projects - recent examples include the music of Julian Arguelles and Tim Garland as well as collaborations with senior string players from within the NYOS organisation. They are musicians on the cusp of their career and play professional repertoire with improvisation at its core. The ensemble has performed music written by its members as well as appearing on concert tours and at jazz festivals with leading international soloists.
In addition, NYOS Jazz Collective has taken part in residencies as well as community outreach projects, and has made studio recordings.
Membership of Jazz Collective is by invitation only.
There are no forthcoming performances.

A collaboration between Drake Music Scotland, the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS) and the composer

One of my all time favourite albums is Donald Fagen’s post Steely Dan 1981 debut solo album, The Nightfly. Well, Malcolm Edmonstone has taken the album and arranged it for the NYOS Jazz Orchestra performing a ‘big band’ rendition from start to finish (with five brilliant vocalists) conducted by Andrew Bain in Edinburgh’s brand new Rose Theatre on Rose Street.
We are delighted to share with you our latest newsletter, with information relating to all our forthcoming performances. NYOS will be covering the length and breadth of Scotland this summer so we do hope you will join us.
We are proud to announce, on behalf of the Endowment Trust of the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland that the recipient of the Colin MacLean Bursary Fund 2017 is French horn player Diana Sheach.
We are delighted to welcome you to our latest newsletter, and to revisit with you the excitement of our spring concerts.
The Americas is the theme for all National Youth Orchestras of Scotland ensembles throughout 2017. Each orchestra will perform a blend of well-known standards together with rarely heard gems directly linked to, or inspired by the Americas.
Within this theme we will present a broad spectrum of classical and jazz music through to contemporary repertoire, from North and South American composers (with music rarely heard in the UK or European concert halls) together with more prominent European composers inspired to write works celebrating the remarkable diversity of the Americas.
What an incredible summer it has been for NYOS Jazz! Back in July, the young musicians were given a warm welcome once again as they gathered at Sabhal Mor Ostaig on the Isle of Skye. The Jazz Summer School has definitely earned its place in the Fèis an Eilean (Skye Festival) now, and it is always a pleasure to return there for a week of creativity and shared musical experiences.
Recent graduate, Molly Anne McWhirter, cello, is the third winner of an award that will assist her in fulfilling her aspiration to become a professional musician.
