Oxfordshire Youth Big Band

The Oxfordshire Youth Big Band (OYBB) started with one group in the mid 1970's. Since then, the big band programme has developed into three progressive big bands and two small jazz ensembles.

The programme is enhanced by jazz groups from secondary schools and the five local Oxfordshire County Music Service (OCMS) Saturday morning music centres. OYBB plays a range of big band style music from early Count Basie to more modern charts by Gordon Goodwin.

Over fifty developing jazz students attend our big band programme on Tuesday nights, from 7:30-9:30, at Bayards Hill School, Oxford. All students, aged eleven to nineteen, who are above a grade five standard and play saxophone, trumpet, trombone, or a rhythm section instrument, are encouraged to come on a Tuesday night and join in our groups.
