The Brussel Youth Jazz Orchestra brings the top young jazz talents of Belgium together in one jazz orchestra.

Every 3 years Jeugd en Muziek Brussel and Brussels Jazz Orchestra compose a Youth Jazz Orchestra: standard 17-piece instrumentation (‘big band line-up’). The musicians have different backgrounds and are all younger than 25. Through auditions we carefully select promising (jazz) talents.

Twice a year, in April and November, we invite an international guest conductor/composer to coach the orchestra for one week and to lead several concerts afterwards. Furthermore, we organise side projects, like concerts tours.

Brussels Jazz Orchestra supervises the artistic aspects of the project. Jeugd en Muziek Brussel organises the project. Our mission: offering young, promising musicians a stepping stone in their career as (jazz) musicians and treating audiences to a fresh interpretation of contemporary jazz.

The second guest composer/arranger/conductor to lead the band is Klas Lindquist.
