Amy Winehouse: A Celebration of Her Life & Music | Palace Theatre, Southend
September 24 @ 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.
Palace Theatre, Southend
A short distance from Southend-on-Sea, the Palace Theatre consistently offers a vibrant mix of comedy, music, drama and shows. Opened in 1912, this delightful Edwardian building retains all of the charm of its music hall origins including the sweeping grand staircase to the Circle, alongside many original features such as the regency-style domes on the boxes and the ornately-decorated billboard frames on the proscenium arch.
