Lancashire Schools Jazz Orchestra

Our schools jazz orchestra (LSJO) is one of Lancashire Music Service’s county ensembles, providing inspiring opportunities for young musicians across the county

The Lancashire Schools Jazz Orchestra offers you the opportunity to work with inspiring leaders and professional musicians, alongside like-minded young people from across Lancashire.

It specialises in giving younger students the opportunity to experience playing big band jazz music and many of the LSJO band members progress into the Lancashire Youth Jazz Orchestra.
