NYJO is hugely delighted to announce it will become part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio for 2015-18, receiving £125,000 a year in investment from the Arts Council over this period. This significant award reflects NYJO’s ambitious plans to give more great performances, to more areas of the country – always engaging with children and young people.
The Arts Council’s National Portfolio organisations represent some of the best arts practice in the world and play a vital role in achieving their mission of great art and culture for everyone. NYJO will now work enthusiastically on implementing our plans – to be an evangelist for jazz and to have a greater role in the musical and cultural life of the nation. We look forward to keeping you updated over the next few months!
