NYOS Jazz Orchestra – Summer Tour 2019

“The outstanding ability of every musician was more than evident as the orchestra played to the enchanted audience” Aberdeen Press and Journal

NYOS Jazz Orchestra continues to enjoy prestigious performance opportunities nationally and internationally under the directorship of Malcolm Edmonstone and Andrew Bain, and this year is no different with the orchestra making its debut appearance at the Sligo Jazz Festival, as part of a tour to Northern Ireland and Eire.

Before that, the orchestra will of course be performing in Scotland, including their annual participation in the Fèis an Eilein on the Isle of Skye followed by its second visit to the state-of-the-art New Auditorium at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Guest artists make an immeasurable contribution to the NYOS Jazz Programme and we are thrilled to welcome British-Bahraini trumpet and flugel player Yazz Ahmed. Her music, arranged for the Jazz Orchestra by Malcolm Edmonstone, will offer the orchestra and audiences alike the unique chance to immerse themselves in Arabic sounds and spirituality.

Yazz is composer who seeks to blur the lines between jazz and electronic sound design, bringing together the sounds of her mixed heritage. Her music has been described as ‘psychedelic Arabic jazz, intoxicating and compelling’.

To complement Yazz’s music, Malcolm has also arranged a set inspired by other incredible female artists including Nikki Iles among others.
