James Larter is NYJO’s 15-year old percussionist. He was a category finalist in the BBC’s 2010 Young Musician Of The Year competition.
James was featured in an inaugural performance of composer Paul Hart’s new suite written especially for NYJO – ‘A Christmas Carol in 6 movements’ – at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club during NYJO’s residency there in January.
James is the youngest member of the band at the moment (and got a huge cheer when that was pointed out at Ronnie’s, mainly from the girls in the audience!).
