Let's be friends

The importance of the SNJO to the cultural life of Scotland cannot be overstated and the SNJO ranks as a world class artistic ambassador for Scotland.

Why is your support important?

By becoming a Friend of the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and its youth wing, the Tommy Smith Youth Jazz Orchestra, you make a vital contribution to the creation of exciting concerts, new recording projects and jazz commissions. More importantly, you help us invest in the future of jazz ensuring further generations ready to play inspiring jazz in Scotland and beyond.

In these increasingly difficult financial times, support from private individuals underpins much of our ability to continue to bring exciting and varied projects to audiences and we are very grateful to all our Friends and Supporters.

Thank you.

Prefer to make a one-off donation?

You don’t have to join our Friendship scheme to support our Orchestras. We are grateful for any contribution – large or small – that will help to put Scottish Jazz on stage, now and in the future.
