Youth Jazz Orchestra

The Naples Philharmonic Youth Jazz Orchestra (NPYJO) celebrates its second year in 2016-17. Nearly 20 students from Lee and Collier county have auditioned and been accepted to participate in the newest student ensemble.

The NPYJO is an educational ensemble that has grown out of the success of the Naples Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra and the All That Jazz series.  Led by Dan Miller, trumpeter for the Naples Philharmonic Jazz Orchestra, the NPYJO will study the repertoire and arrangements of jazz greats, such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. Students will also study jazz improvisation, small group arranging and original jazz composition techniques.
