Look who’s coming to town!

Between the 16th – 18th September 2016 DYJA, in partnership with Doncaster Music Education Hub, will be welcoming NYJO for a weekend of Jazz education across the region.

A series of free workshops running across schools as well as at CAST and the Doncaster Jazz Centre will look to encourage anyone interested in learning to play an instrument, develop their skills further or learn more about the jazz genre to get involved.

A team of NYJO Ambassadors will be joining us to offer valuable insights, techniques, skills and encouragement to participants across the weekend.

An intimate performance session at the Jazz Centre early on Saturday evening will bring the weekend workshops together.

This collaborative weekend will culminate on the 18th September, a Sunday afternoon concert directed by Mark Armstrong and Dennis Rollins, both respective Artistic Directors of NYJO and DYJA.

“The last time NYJO visited Doncaster was in 1975 – over 40 years ago” says John Ellis, Musical Director of DYJA.

“A lot has changed in music education during that time and now more than ever collaborations of this kind are fundamental to encouraging our young people to push the boundaries of learning.

We are so lucky and privileged to be hosting NYJO for this weekend.”

If you know of any young musician that would love to be involved with this weekend series keep your eyes open for further information….
