Become a Friend

Our Friends scheme enables you to enjoy a closer relationship with the orchestras that will enhance your enjoyment of our concerts and maximize your jazz experience.

The importance of the SNJO to the cultural life of Scotland cannot be understated and the SNJO ranks as a world class artistic ambassador for Scotland.  Tommy Smith’s leadership gives a wonderful opportunity for our young musicians to develop all the skills and experience they need to become successful professional musicians.

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.
