The National Youth Jazz Orchestra is an orchestra that is reformed every two years. Together with the new musicians there is also every two year a new conductor. NYJO IV is led by artistic director, conductor, arranger and composer Martin Fondse. In 2016 they performed at places as Bimhuis, LantarenVenster and Amersfoort Jazz, worked together with the strings of the Metropole Orchestra and they did the muziekzomer with NJO and Steffen Schorn. This latter project was recorded for a live CD. In 2017 the NYJO played at the North Sea Jazz festival and again there was a collaboration with the NJO, this time conducted by Jules Buckley. This fusion of orchestras was called 'Jong Metropole' and it played at places as Grachtenfestival and Radio Kootwijk. At 19 September 2017 the NYJO IV won the award 'Zilveren Notenkraker': a recognition and an incentive prize for upcoming talent.
