Start the year with NYJO at Ronnie’s. This week’s PRIZE DRAW for newsletter readers is a pair of tickets for the second night of the three-day NYJO residency at Ronnie Scott’s, Tuesday January 3rd.
For this residency NYJO have commissioned two brand new pieces from Julian Joseph which will be premiered. Two of the new pieces NYJO premiered last year : Nikki Iles’ “Hush“, and Tim Garland‘s “Dawn before Dark before Dawn” are also on the programme. NYJO tells me it is taking “another step towards broadening our artistic scope and forging bonds with leading musicians and composers on the UK and International scenes”.
And here’s more proof of NYJO’s other push, to integrate more effectively into the jazz education community: NYJO will be doing a workshop and performing the closing concert of the Leeds International Jazz Educators Conference on Friday 30 March 2012.
