 25th November - Cornwall Youth Jazz Orchestra performing at the Cornwall Youth Jazz Festival

The Cornwall Youth Jazz Orchestra is a long established ensemble which specialises in big band style jazz.


The CMEH county ensembles are substantially subsidised through the grant received from Arts Council England but a termly membership fee of £25 is payable for all of these ensembles (Cornwall Youth Brass Ensemble, Cornwall Youth Percussion Ensemble, Cornwall Youth Jazz Orchestra and Sax Is Our Business).

We realise that some players will be a member of more than one of these ensembles and therefore a discounted rate will apply for multiple memberships:

Please note that this discounted rate only applies to these ensembles and does not include membership of the Cornwall Youth Orchestra, Cornwall Youth Wind Orchestra, the county choirs or any ensemble not delivered by the CMEH.
