On Tuesday 10th July NYJO are guesting on a BBC TV flagship – The One Show – the live evening magazine programme which daily features topical news stories and big name studio guests.
The presenters of this immensely popular BBC 1 show, Matt Baker and Alex Jones (left), will be hosting a discussion with Katie Derham – who fronts the BBC Proms coverage on television and radio – highlighting this year’s Proms Season’s emphasis on youth.
NYJO – under the baton of Music Director Mark Armstrong – will be in the studio to give the discussion a practical dimension. The producers of The One Show told NYJO that they wanted “a proper in-your-face Big Band sound – so we came to NYJO”.
The One Show reaches an audience of between 3 and 5 million viewers every evening – providing priceless high profile air-time exposure for NYJO in the run-up to the Proms and guaranteeing some extremely valuable publicity for the band.
The One Show Live : 7.00-7.30pm : Tuesday 10th July : BBC 1 Television
