Tomorrow’s Warriors are delighted to announce that we are amongst the 44 organisations around the country confirmed to be PRS Foundation Talent Development Partners for 2023/24.
Launched in 2016, this pioneering network of Talent Development Partners brings together organisations working at the frontline of talent development in the UK, supporting a broad range of music creators across different music genres, career levels from the grassroots up and across the regions of the UK.
The network – which includes festivals, venues, studios and other talent development expert organisations – reaches over 4,000 diverse and exciting songwriters, composers, artists, bands, ensembles and producers each year.
Organisations are selected because of the quality and range of opportunities on offer for music creators in their specialist field or region, the impact of their work, and because of what they bring to the network.
“We are incredibly excited to be confirmed as a PRS Foundation Talent Development Partner for 2023/24.
“This essential support will help us commission two new original compositions by Black British composers, Oleta Haffner and Nu Civilisation Orchestra’s Peter Edwards. Both pieces of music will be premiered by the orchestra on 15 September as part of a headline concert at Royal Festival Hall that features Nubya Garcia performing the Stan Getz masterpiece, ‘Focus’.
“Additionally, we will be able to deliver an exciting professional development programme for strings players, curious to explore the Third Stream at the intersection of jazz and classical music.” Janine Irons MBE, Co-Founder of Tomorrow’s Warriors
