The first Doncaster-based youth jazz orchestra was formed in 1973. Four graded orchestras now exist – Doncaster Youth Stageband, Doncaster Youth Swing Orchestra, Doncaster Youth Jazz Orchestra and the Doncaster Jazz Orchestra.
The Association continues to work to promote through jazz education a feeling of community and a real appreciation of how much it means to create something as part of a team. There is something magical about the way in which a group of young people can be brought together with a common purpose and it never ceases to amaze as to how much they can accomplish when, with single-minded dedication, they apply themselves to projects set before them.
DYJA is doing great work for the musical education of the children of South Yorkshire; our performances carry the town’s name with credit around the country and abroad; and we should all do whatever we can to ensure that those benefits continue.Please donate to support our cause.
