First stop, give your lunchtime some festive cheer with sets from their youngest but boldest ensemble, the Junior Band aged 11 – 15, led by Artistic Director Gary Crosby OBE. After a packed year of high profile performances across London, this quintet are the MOBO / Jazz FM stars of the future.
The Youth Ensemble are a septet with serious swing. Aged 15 – 19, and led by MOBO Award-winner Binker Holding (of Binker & Moses), they are much-in-demand as a semi-pro performance group.
The eight-piece Female Frontline Collective play a selection of upbeat jazz standards and festive versions of some well-known classics, to have you dancing your way through the winter blues.
And to top it off, their younger musicians are joined by their newest (but most seasoned) ensemble – the Vintage Warriors. A long time in the making, the Vintage Warriors project was launched in July 2017 and comprises the most hardy, enthusiastic, and jazz-loving retirees and lapsed players from across London and the South of England. After a summer appearance with the TW youth orchestra this is their chance to ‘swing’ on their own.
For all ages
