Here are the five official BBC photos of Prom 28, and band and set lists. They tell the story of the NYJOS making their Proms debut at the Royal Albert Hall on August 5th.


This was a single set but with three contrasting parts. As a centrepiece, Andrew Bain (interviewed HERE in the run-up to this concert) directed Ellington's Such Sweet Thunder, thoughtfully, bringing out all the contrasts in mood and feel. The loudest applause went to Helena Kay for her Johnny Hodges alto feature Star-Crossed Lovers. Trombonist Richard Foote was another strong soloist. Either side of them were soloists performing carefully crafted arrangements by Malcolm Edmonstone. The first mini-set featured the infinitely musical and infinitely modest Iain Ballamy , and by complete contrast the closing mini-set brought the megawatt joyous energy-boost of Liane Carroll. A happy occasion!
