Amy Winehouse: A Celebration of Her Life & Music | The Fire Station, Sunderland
10th February 2022 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 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.
The Fire Station
The Fire Station is an exciting new home for music and performance, developed by the Sunderland MAC Trust, in the heart of Sunderland City Centre, and a key pillar of Sunderland’s cultural regeneration. The transformational development began with the impressive restoration of the original 1907 Fire Station, into an arts hub, studios and the Engine Room bar/bistro, which was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in February 2018.
