RWC Big Band: Spirit of '49

RWC Big Band: Spirit of '49


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.
