NYOS Jazz Orchestra
Sleat, Isle of Skye
NYOS Jazz Orchestra (The National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland) is Scotland's foremost youth jazz ensemble that performs throughout the UK at high profile jazz venues and festivals.
Thursday 19 July 2018 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
This summer NYOS Jazz Orchestra presents a profusion of cool jazz in a two-part concert.
In part one, we celebrate the music of Joe Zawinul’s groundbreaking group Weather Report. The 1970s were one of the most exciting periods in jazz, and after the emergence of rock and roll, the inevitable fusion of jazz and rock came of age. Never more so than in the music of Weather Report, blending grooves and improvisation, through-composed melodies and evolving ensemble textures.
In part two, it’s time for something completely different, as the Jazz Orchestra are joined by beatboxer, sound artist and vocal sculptor Jason Singh. Jason is a composer, solo artist and collaborator who works across a wide range of art forms, music genres, educational practices and sound formats. His work includes sound installations, live film scores and vocal recreations of birdsong and entire forestscapes.
Reserve your seat below and pay at the door. BAR from 30 minutes before the show.
Adults £15, Members and Students £13, Young People £7, Under 10s and Seasons free.
