Lake District Summer Music welcomes the National Youth Jazz Orchestra for a spectacular opening night of the 2022 festival.

Jazz has been thrilling audiences across the world for over a hundred years. In that time generations of new musicians have expressed themselves through a rich variety of style, taste and regional inflection. 


In this programme, NYJO explores the impact on music made by Count Basie and twentieth-century Black American artists that followed: Frank Foster, Dizzy Gillespie, Tadd Dameron, Oliver Nelson, Quincy Jones, and Thad Jones. We invite you to join us in celebrating the spirit of invention, the repurposing and reimagining, the innovation and soul of these great Jazz masters.
