Nashville Youth Jazz Ensemble

Mission Statement

Nashville Youth Jazz Ensemble (NYJE) was created to provide a high-level educational/performance experience in a jazz big band for students, grades 8-12, in the Greater Nashville community. An important goal of NYJE is to fill a community need for jazz education/performance for young people, especially those who do not have access to such an experience.

Another goal of NYJE is to foster appreciation and support for jazz music in our community. By performing concerts alongside regional or national jazz artists, students present to our community an authentic experience in jazz, America’s truly original art form.
