NYJO with guest soloist Yazz Ahmed, Lichfield Festival
July 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
We are thrilled to be performing at Lichfield Festival with esteemed trumpeter Yazz Ahmed, to bring you a programme that celebrates women in jazz; from the songs of Ella Fitzgerald and the 1940s trombone stylings of Melba Liston and composer and pianist Mary-Lou Williams, to contemporary classics by band leader Maria Schneider. Yazz will also be premiering her brand new work written especially for NYJO, generously supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund.
We are excited to highlight the great music of jazz musicians who happen to be female!
