Sean Jones | Trumpet/Bandleader
Dianne Reeves | Vocalist

Showcasing American music for big band from Basie and Ellington to today's jazz greats The International Festival's spectacular six-concert celebration of some of the world's finest youth ensembles continues with one of the globe's most dynamic youth groups.

The National Youth Jazz Orchestra of the USA – or NYO Jazz – was founded just this year at New York’s Carnegie Hall. It brings together some of America’s most outstanding young jazz musicians aged 16 to 19, in an exuberant celebration of a uniquely American musical genre. It’s directed by renowned jazz trumpeter and composer Sean Jones.

Grammy award-winning jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves – compared with Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald for her powerful voice and big personality – joins NYO Jazz for classic numbers. The orchestra explores music across a broad genre, from Duke Ellington and Count Basie through to hip-hop and R&B.
