NYOS Jazz Orchestra 2016 Summer Tour
This summer we are excited to welcome back previous collaborators – saxophonist Iain Ballamy performing some of his compositions such as All Men Amen and Floater along with pianist/vocalist Liane Carroll – to perform a series of arrangements by Malcolm Edmonstone, including songs made popular by Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Carole King and others.
We are also absolutely delighted to announce that NYOS Jazz Orchestra (The National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland) will perform at The BBC Proms 2016 for the first time in its history.
NYOS Jazz Orchestra will be joined by Liane Carroll, Iain Ballamy, Malcolm Edmonstone and Andrew Bain for late night Prom 28 during which they mark Shakespeare’s anniversary with Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s musical tribute to the Bard, Such Sweet Thunder. With instruments taking the roles of actors, Ellington’s piece broke new ground when it appeared in 1957 as part of a 12-part Shakespeare-themed album, and it still feels entirely fresh today.
We do hope you can join us on this unprecedented, UK-wide summer tour. It really does have something for everyone and the excitement within the Orchestra is already palpable.
