We are still all reeling from the terrible news about former Tomorrow’s Warriors/Ezra Collective alto saxophonist, David Turay who passed away, aged 19, last weekend. Though we are all tremendously sad at this time, we are united in a desire not only to mark his passing, but also to celebrate his life, his energy, and his contribution to the Warriors family.
Our thanks to Femi Koleoso and fellow Ezra Collective members for offering to dedicate their EFG London Jazz Festival performance to David, giving us all an opportunity to bid him Farewell:
Friday 21 November @ 5.30pm (£Free)
The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall
Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
As part of the performance, Ezra Collective will play the set they played with David at Ronnie Scotts back in 2012 when, as Tomorrow’s Warriors Youth Ensemble, they celebrated winning the Yamaha Jazz Experience Band Competition.
Helping us say Farewell to David will be some special VIP guest artists, plus members of the Tomorrow’s Warriors family. We invite you, our wider family, to join us on Friday to celebrate the life of a young Warrior: David Turay.
