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.
The concert will open with a celebration of some of the work of Rick Taylor. Rick lived on Skye for many years and had been a major influence the local, national and international jazz scene. He was a regular tutor for the NYJOS week each summer on Skye.
Guest artists make an immeasurable contribution to the NYOS Jazz Programme and we are thrilled to welcome trumpet player Yazz Ahmed to inspire our students with her exceptional musicianship and flair.
