Tomorrow’s Warriors are premiere-ing a new work Bridge to Our Memories at the Purcell Room on the South Bank. The suite consists of five piees by Ben Burrell, Yazz Ahmed, Peter Edwards, Binker Golding and Nathaniel Facey. The commission is supported by money from the PRS for Music Foundation. Performers are the Tomorrow’s Warriors Youth Orchestra directed by Nathaniel Facey. BBC Radio 3 Jazz on 3 are recording the concert for transmission on 4th May.
We are told: : “Admission is entirely free” (apart from the South Bank’s £1.75 booking fee), “but you do need to book.”
Janine Irons has written:
We have been assured by Southbank Centre that they will not charge concertgoers the £1.75 booking fee. Unfortunately, the Southbank Centre website uses generic page elements and shows the booking fee whether or not the ticket has a face value.
Here's what you can look forward to with your (really) entirely free ticket:
Echoes of African storytelling, South African highlife, dancing Arabian rhythms, and lilting Caribbean folk music thread through 'Bridge To Our Memories', drawing on tales of migration, family traditions, cultural mysteries and myths.
It's going to be a great evening. Hope you can make it!
