RWCMD Big Band: Spirit of '49



Saturday 2 November 5pm

As part of the College’s 70th anniversary season our Big Band and singers take you on a musical journey back to the year the College was founded. Celebrating the height of the jazz and swing era, this evening's concert will have a very aristocratic flavour featuring the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Britain's own Miller-inspired, Ted Heath. Trombonist and band-leader Heath performed at the 1949 Royal Command Performance for King George VI and his British band backed Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne and pioneered Sunday Night at The Palladium.

Tickets: £12, £10 concessions (Under 25s £6)
