NYJC 2017 Summer School concert videos are now online!

Every year we record our Summer School closing concert.

This year’s special 10th Anniversary concert was on 12th August at Kings Place. It was the climax of the Summer School held in Purcell School Bushey, Herts.

The bands had worked together for a week with tutors who helped them develop an understanding of each piece and then create an original arrangement which they perform here.

These are now ready for everyone to enjoy!
