The Jazz Ticket is a schools-based music education project produced by Tomorrow’s Warriors that brings together young musicians from across the UK to work with leading jazz professionals on a set of specially arranged compositions marking the centenary of the birth of six Giants Of Jazz

In each city, the programme culminates in a series of gala concerts in prestigious arts venues featuring our Jazz Ticket schools, alongside Tomorrow’s Warriors’ flagship professional jazz ensemble, the Nu Civilisation Orchestra performing Peter Edwards’ PRS New Music Biennial commission from Turner Sims, A Journey with the Giants of Jazz, along with other pieces made famous by the six Giants of Jazz. The Jazz Ticket begins its journey in January 2017 and reaches its final destination in London on 29 April 2018, closing with a Grand Finale at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, featuring over 200 of the young musicians who have taken part in the programme and the Nu Civilisation Orchestra.

A Journey with the Giants of Jazz is generously supported by PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial and The Jazz Ticket is generously supported by Arts Council England Strategic Touring Fund.
