One Big Encore for Bill Ashton!

Bill Ashton 1The London Gazette has today announced that, in the Queen’s birthday honours, William Michael Allingham Ashton MBE, Life President of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, has been awarded an OBE for Services to Music.

The entire Board of NYJO, together with all the Associates, would like to offer Bill their most sincere and heartfelt congratulations!

Fittingly, the actual investiture later this year will take place around the time of the celebration of NYJO’s 45th anniversary – what better way to mark Bill’s lifetime commitment to NYJO, his achievement and lasting legacy?
