The Isle of Wight Youth Jazz Orchestra initiative aims to fill a void on the isle where there is no local Youth Jazz Orchestra and no focal point for young jazz musicians to come together in what is a very spread out and rural community. Through fortnightly large ensemble rehearsals and other rehearsals in between as well as performances across the island and at local jazz festivals, it is hoped that this gap will be filled and the musicians will gain friendships and confidence which will then enable them to attend local jam sessions with confidence, to form bands and to progress their musical careers. Find Out More:
