SYJO Big Band 3 auditions

There are still some vacanicies in SYJO3, the junior ensemble of the Sydney Youth Jazz Orchestra. They are looking for sax players, trumpet, trombone and electric guitar. The band is for junior high school and upper primary students. This is a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to play in a high standard jazz big band along with other really keen students. We recommend it for any of our young students.  It is a very good band and really enjoyable too.

SYJO3 suggest that members need to be around the equivalent of AMEB grade 4 standard to join the group. Musicians don’t need to have done any exams, just be able to play music at about that level of difficulty or better. Ask your teacher if you aren’t sure.

All the SYJO bands use the rehearsal room at JWA. SYJO3 rehearses Tuesdays 6:15 – 7:15.

There is also a vacancy for a pianist aged 14 – 19 in SYJO 2, the older group.
