National Youth Jazz Wales provides the opportunity for talented young jazz musicians to develop their improvisational and ensemble skills under the guidance of some of the UK’s best jazz specialists. Its members perform in small combos as well as a conventional 18 piece big band, covering music from the age of swing through to contemporary charts.
Administered by Tŷ Cerdd - Music Centre Wales, the NYJW has appeared throughout Wales and in recent times has given well received performances at Aberystwyth MusicFest and the Welsh Proms.
