Nu Civilisation Orchestra-The Jazz Ticket 2017

The Jazz Ticket was a ground-breaking national jazz education outreach and concert touring project celebrating the music of 6 legendary jazz artists: Tadd Dameron, Ella Fitzgerald, Mongo Santamaria, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and Buddy Rich. We worked with 28 partners over 2017/8 in 8 cities – Brighton, Bristol, Hull, Leicestershire, Luton, Southampton and Manchester culminating in a National Grand Finale at London‘s Southbank Centre in April 2018. We delivered 150 workshops to 718 young musicians (not including the young people participating as audiences) across KS2-5 and 62 music teachers, from 54 schools working with 16 music leaders from Tomorrow’s Warriors and 22 jazz artists from our professional ensemble, Nu Civilisation Orchestra, reaching live audiences of 5,493 people at 14 concerts in professional venues.
