JAM is above all a creative, dynamic, forward-thinking organisation, formed with one purpose in mind. Since 2000 we have existed purely to nurture, commission, perform and promote new music in the UK.
“There are few organisations with such a specific commitment to encouraging and performing new music…” Classical Music Magazine
JAM’s commission for 2015 will be by the wonderful Thea Musgrave. The piece for choir, brass quintet and organ will be premiered in London and Kent in July next year. Can’t wait!!
Call for Music
Every year JAM puts out a Call for Music, for which anyone, of any age, status or creed can submit. From these, JAM creates an exciting, whirlwind series of concerts to tour the UK, showcasing new composers. The tour is performed by highly skilled professional and amateur musicians.
JAM has enabled and performed over sixty new works since 2000, regularly working with world-class performers including the BBC Singers, Nicholas Cleobury, Stephen Layton, Onyx Brass and many others. Established Composers commissioned by JAM include: Judith Bingham, Phillip Cashian, Jonathan Dove, Adam Gorb, Gabriel Jackson, Steve Martland, John McCabe, Paul Mealor, Tarik O’Regan, Paul Patterson,Julian Phillips and many more. For 2014 we have commissioned Giles Swayne (choir, brass & organ)and Judith Bingham – (oboe concerto).
