Jazz drum legend and much-loved Conservatoire tutor, Tony Levin passed away in February 2011. His legacy still very much lives on with us and one of the forms in which this happens is the continuation of the Tony Levin Drum Prize.Tony’s plan was that each student finalist would play a short set with fellow Jazz Department tutors, Arnie Somogyi and Jean Toussaint, to determine which student is most deserving of the accolade of ‘most swinging’.

Witness a high-energy concert and a spotlight on future careers in jazz drumming: a ‘happening’ as Tony would say.

4.30pm Ruggero Caruso
6.30pm Jonathan Silk
