Tomorrow’s Warriors is pivotal in elevating UK jazz, valued by its alumni and respected by funding partners for the impact delivered through its pipeline for outstanding, diverse talent.
In 2021, we celebrated our 30-year legacy and future focus on the next generation of UK jazz talent by reopening our live events programme of concerts, tours and outreach; announcing exciting new partnerships; and laying firm foundations for Tomorrow’s Warriors to grow and thrive for the next 30 years. We’re looking for passionate, committed people to join us and be part of a diverse, innovative, ambitious organisation that is determined to effect positive, lasting change in jazz and the wider music industry.
