Tomorrow's Warriors 25th Anniversary Jam featuring Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite

See Tomorrow’s Warriors Youth Orchestra (TWYO) perform The Nutcracker Suite by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, along with some classic festive big band tunes, in a special 25th anniversary performance launching Wintertime.

TWYO features the best of Tomorrow’s Warriors’ young musicians aged 15 – 19 and is led by long-time Warrior Music Leader and MOBO Award-winning musician and composer, Binker Golding (of Binker & Moses).

Tomorrow’s Warriors jazz strings ensemble StringTing also perform a set, including the Southbank premiere of Max Roach’s Extensions, originally performed by the Uptown Swing Quartet in the mid-1980s.

And no Warrior anniversary party would be complete without the house band and guests from past and present. Going back to Tomorrow’s Warrior roots and celebrating the jam that set so many successful jazz musicians on their way, the Tomorrow’s Warriors Headline Jam is an evening of incredible music and Warrior faces (and sounds) going back 25 years.
