Amersfoort World Jazz Festival

Main Stage

NJJO, or Nationaal Jeugd Jazz Orkest (National Youth Jazz Orchestra) is one of the country’s best jazz orchestras, despite it consisting of some of the youngest musicians on the scene. Every other year, the orchestra changes its artistic direction, appointing a new leader to determine its musical path. For 2021/2022, decorated saxophonist Maarten Hogenhuis is at the helm; those familiar with his trio or his work with Dutch crime jazz outfit BRUUT! Will agree this is an exciting choice!
