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.

Before that, the orchestra will of course be performing in Scotland, including their annual participation in the Fèis an Eilein on the Isle of Skye followed by its second visit to Birnam Arts Centre and the state-of-the-art New Auditorium at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Guest artists make an immeasurable contribution to the NYOS Jazz Programme and we are thrilled to welcome British-Bahraini trumpet and flugel player Yazz Ahmed. Her music, arranged for the Jazz Orchestra by Malcolm Edmonstone, will offer the orchestra and audiences alike the unique chance to immerse themselves in Arabic sounds and spirituality.

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.
