NYJO in Rugby

My second night at Festival on the Close produced an impressive National Youth Jazz Orchestra performance.  I’ve seen NYJO some years ago at the Cheltenham Jazz festival and their quality, skill and ability to share and project their enthusiasm is great.

Last night they included pupils from local schools for one piece, which filled the stage and front of house.  It was great to see the combination of young and younger playing together.
