The Young Orchestra from Xerez (JOX) is an educational and pedagogical project started in 2016. This project provides young musicians a good quality education, that includes artistic and human values. Following these bases, we want our musicians to develop skills and abilities such as effort, empathy, learning wish, sensitivity, respect… These principles are useful as well for the music work as for life and human development. The JOX is formed by young musicians from 12 to 25 years old from Cádiz province in Spain. It consolidates as an educational and pedagogic project in Cádiz province, taking part in several concerts and musical meetings: Christmas Concert 2017 in Blas Infante Auditorium in Jerez; XII Days of Open Doors in Medina Sidonia; Book Fair in Claustros de Santo Domingo in Jerez; Musical Youth Festival in Chipiona. The orchestra has taken part in the perform of The Miserere composed by Hilarión Eslava, in collaboration with the Chorus of Villamarta Theatre in Jerez. Justo Manuel Jiménez Fábregas played as a guest conductor during the II Summer Meeting and the Christmas Concert 2018 was conducted by Studio ArteNow. Nowadays, the orchestra es formed by approximately 50 young musicians, who face a new stage from November 2018, summing up talent and enthusiasm with the help of a new Musical Director José Miguel Román.
