NUSU's longest running Big Band and Society of the Year 2019. Feel free to come along to our weekly rehearsals if you want to indulge a bit of Jazz, some Swing or a touch of Blues. We also play Latin, Funk, Soul, Motown and Pop numbers!
The Jazz Orchestra plays numerous public and private gigs throughout the year, ranging from Society Balls to Charity Fundraisers. We would love any dedicated and enthusiastic players to come along and join us!
We accept new members through an informal audition at the beginning of every year, so don't be afraid to give us a try. . We look forward to jamming with you!
This year is a bit different in terms of the audition process. To apply, we would like you to fill out the form below with your details and then send us a short video (approx 1 minute) of you playing/singing a jazz number of your choice. Please send this video via WeTransfer (the information on how to do this is on the form).
After we've reviewed the applications, you may be invited to a zoom audition. This will be an informal chat with a couple of our current members and we'll ask you to do a bit of sight-reading of one of our NUJO pieces.
If you're unsure about anything involved, drop an email to email@example.com or send us a message on our Facebook (NUJO - Newcastle University Jazz Orchestra) or instagram page (@nujazzorchestra), we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Please send in your information on this form and send the video via WeTransfer.com by 5pm Friday 16th October 2020
AUDITION DATES: These will be held over Zoom on Sat 24th - Sun 25th October. We'll send you a time individually. If you can't make these dates, please let us know ASAP and we can try to rearrange your audition date.
