We’re so happy to announce that we’ve been awarded a grant of £9,854 by the Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation towards jazz training sessions in 2020 for our Tomorrow’s Warriors Youth Development Group. This is our second funding award from the Foundation and will allow us to continue offering free weekly jazz workshops at Southbank Centre as part of our Young Artist Development Programme. We’ll also be able to offer more performance opportunities to our talented young musicians aged 15-19, and support a young music leader.
Thanks to the Foundation’s funding in 2019, students in this group were able to take up many exciting performance opportunities, showcasing on many prestigious stages including Ronnie Scott’s, Love Supreme, We Out Here and London Jazz Festival. Members of this group also form the house band at Tomorrow’s Warriors’ monthly jam at Rich Mix.
We are so grateful to the Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation for supporting us for a second year and are so excited to see these talented young musicians have the opportunity to fulfil their musical potential.
