The Jazz Ticket in Luton

Sixty Luton musicians, aged 11 – 18, have been working with inspirational musicians from London-based youth jazz ensemble, Tomorrow’s Warriors, on a project that celebrates the lives of six jazz legends who would have turned 100 this year.

Students from Ashcroft High School, Cardinal Newman Catholic School, The Chalks Hills Academy and Luton Sixth Form College formed six bands and participated in workshops in January and February. Each of the six bands explored the music of one of the jazz greats: Tadd Dameron, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gilliespie, Thelonious Monk, Buddy Rich and Mongo Santamaria.

The young musicians have developed both their performance and improvisation skills and are very much looking forward to showcasing specially-arranged sets on Friday (24 March). They will perform in an afternoon concert for schools at UK Centre for Carnival Arts and an evening concert at 7.30pm at Luton Sixth Form College. Tomorrow’s Warriors’ flagship professional ensemble, Nu Civilisation Orchestra, will join the musicians in the second half, bringing this incredible project to a close.

If you would like to attend the evening concert on Friday 24 March, please contact Luton Music Service on 01582 538224 or at lutonmusicservice@luton.gov.uk.
