Nu Civilisation Orchestra directed by Peter Edwards - A Journey with the Giants of Jazz

1917 was a defining year for jazz, with the birth of some of its most influential artists: Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Tadd Dameron, Buddy Rich and Mongo Santamaria.

Peter Edwards conducts the Nu Civilisation Orchestra for his latest commission, A Journey with the Giants of Jazz, which takes as its starting point motifs from six works associated with these jazz icons. The commission will be preceded by performances of the six works by young people from Hull and East Riding schools.

Presented in partnership with Tomorrow’s Warriors and Hull & East Riding Music Hubs.

Generously supported by PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial.
