Amy Winehouse: A Celebration of Her Life & Music | De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill On Sea
October 7 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
NYJO Celebrates Amy
NYJO alumna Amy Winehouse is undoubtably one of the greatest musical talents to come out of the UK. Her unmistakable character, vocal dexterity and masterful songwriting made her a pop icon. Her tragic passing makes her one of the most sorely missed artists in recent memory. Now, ten years on, her music still shines, undiminished, in all its defiant brilliance. This concert series celebrates Amy’s enduring legacy, reimagining hits and revisiting early works she sang with the 24-piece National Youth Jazz Orchestra as a promising 16-year-old singer, back in 2000. We aim to honour her life, and her work, with a performance that fans of big band jazz, and Amy obsessives will enjoy together, as one.
De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill On Sea
Conceived as a democratic space for art, culture and recreation, and as a hub for the wider community, the building’s design is unique, purposeful and progressive, embracing the international style while remaining quintessentially British. Named after the 9th Earl De La Warr, who was the driving force in its creation, the Pavilion was designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff and opened in 1935. Today it continues to be home to an ever-changing programme of established and emerging artists.
