NATIONAL YOUTH JAZZ ORCHESTRA
AMY WINEHOUSE: A CELEBRATION OF HER LIFE AND MUSIC
March 24th 7.45pm
The Marquee, University of Surrey
Part of the NYJO nationwide tour to celebrate the life & music of the prodigious talent that was Amy Winehouse, in memory of the 10th Anniversary of her passing,
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.
