Pianist, composer, bandleader and arranger Martin Fondse is the new artistic director of the Sena National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NJJO).
NJJO it is more than a bridge between school and practice. The experiences of the participants in the areas of musical collaboration, personal coaching, program level, prestige of the venues and festivals, offer a unique value and can be decisive for the rest of their musical, creative and social career.
The repertoire will consist of new and existing work of the versatile Fondse itself. For the 2015 edition Martin will compose new works to his ever-evolving Jazz Orchestra suite ‘City Lights’.
