To be confirmed

The Cornwall Youth Jazz Orchestra is a long established ensemble which specialises in big band style jazz.




The CMEH county ensembles are substantially subsidised through the grant received from Arts Council England but a termly membership fee of £30 is payable for each of these ensembles (Cornwall Youth Brass Ensemble, Cornwall Youth Percussion Ensemble, Cornwall Youth Jazz Orchestra and Sax Is Our Business).

We realise that some players will be a member of more than one of these ensembles and therefore a discounted rate will apply for multiple memberships:

Please note that this discounted rate only applies to these ensembles and does not include membership of the Cornwall Youth Orchestra, Cornwall Youth Wind Orchestra, the county choirs or any ensemble not delivered by the CMEH.  

Subsidised Membership Fees

The CMEH offers a 50% subsidy for the fees of students who fall under one of the following criteria:

All members must complete and submit the form below at the start of each academic year. Parent/Carers will be invoiced for the first term's membership fee upon receipt of the form and then invoiced at the start of the following two terms.  A new membership form must be completed at the start of each academic year so that we have up to date details and consents for all members.
