NYOS JAZZ ORCHESTRA – SUMMER TOUR

‘ROAD TRIP ACROSS THE AMERICAS’

 

The Americas is the theme for all National Youth Orchestras of Scotland ensembles throughout 2017. Each orchestra will perform a blend of well-known standards together with rarely heard gems directly linked to, or inspired by the Americas.

NYOS Jazz Orchestra present a programme that takes them on a Road Trip Across the Americas. The orchestra is led, as always by Music director Malcolm Edmonstone and Principal Conductor Andrew Bain and the featured guest artist this summer is the amazing Scottish guitarist Malcolm MacFarlane.

NYOS Jazz Orchestra will be playing some seriously funky music, revisiting Donald Fagan’s seminal solo debut Nightfly, and these concerts will involve a vocal jazz ensemble, one of the Jazz programme’s most exciting recent developments.

And with Malcolm MacFarlane involved, it won’t surprise you to know the second half will feature some of the legendary American guitar gods you’d expect, including some classic charts from Pat Metheny.

 

Guest Artist: Malcolm MacFarlane

Music Director: Malcolm Edmonstone

Principal Conductor: Andrew Bain
