ENJO Jazz Orchestra has a new, dedicated website and a new name.  Please visit us at www.englishjazzorchestra.co.uk


ENJO Jazz Orchestra is the UK's freshest, most exciting and forward-thinking contemporary music project.

ENJO is developing a top-class, professional Big Band, drawn from some of the best up and coming jazz musicians and will deliver, through our ENJO Academy system, a unique and excellent programme of coaching, mentoring and performance opportunities for learner players and developing jazz players of all ages and previous experience.

ENJO is working with new, home-grown composers and arrangers as premiering new music and encouraging interest and development in writing new jazz material is a cornerstone of our project.

ENJO Academy programme runs in London on a choice of two evenings per week: Thursday evening Big Band sessions in Enfield and Friday evening Jazz Orchestra sessions in Southgate, London N14. ENJO also runs a daytime Wednesday morning jazz Workshop in East Finchley, London N2.

ENJO Academy students are able to rehearse alongside professional-standard players and receive close coaching and mentoring to accelerate progress.

ENJO Academy Enfield meets on Thursday evenings between 7.30pm and 9.30pm at St Luke the Evangelist Church, Browning Road, Enfield EN2 0HG. Our Bandleader is Rachael Forsyth BA (Hons). (Nearest rail station is Gordon Hill - 10 minute walk)

ENJO Academy Southgate meets on Friday evenings between 8.00pm and 10.00pm at Oakwood Baptist Church, Merrivale, Southgate, London N14 4TE. Our Bandleader is Martyn Stogden. (Nearest London Underground Station is Oakwood on the Piccadilly Line - 10 mins.)

ENJO Academy East Finchley meets on Wednesdays between 11.30am and 12.45pm at Holy Trinity Church, Church Lane, East Finchley, London N2 0TH. Our Session Leader is Martyn Stogden. (Nearest Underground is East Finchley on the Northern Line, 10 minutes walk away.)

ENJO Jazz Orchestra, our performance band, is made up of 17 pro-standard players, top-class vocalists with the option for full symphonic strings and woodwind backing from our mighty NLPO Concert Orchestra, capable of performing the largest venues to the smallest combo settings. ENJO Professional Band Rehearsals are scheduled monthly on weeknights at various venues around the North London area.

ENJO and ENJO Academy are backed and administered by London-based Four Hills Music network. Our work with Four Hills Music's NLPO Concert Orchestra gives an extra dimension to our range and versatility, which we're fortunate enough to be able to access on a regular basis.
