Jazz Course & Concert Information

Jazz Applications are now closed and will open again in September 2020.

After careful consideration and with great sadness, we have taken the decision to cancel all our summer courses and concerts due to the on-going situation with the COVID-19 outbreak. Full details here 

The NYOS Jazz vision is to:

  • Develop a new generation of jazz musicians, open to all styles and eager to spread the word of jazz 
  • Create a clear journey of musical development with various entry and exit points 
  • Nurture talent by offering opportunities to study and perform jazz at the highest possible level, with respected professional musicians from the UK and beyond 
  • Enhance the performing experience by bringing young musicians of advanced proficiency together
  • Continually improve the level of playing and improvising in all ensembles  

If you are interested in applying and are an instrumentalist or vocalist aged between 12 and 25 then NYOS would like to hear from you. Closing date for applications is Friday 25 September 2020.
