This year, internationally renowned trombonist and composer Robin Eubanks will join the stellar Human Revolution Orchestra as a special guest for a series of UK dates including Ode To The Human Spirit 2015 on April 30th in London.

The Mission

The Human Revolution Orchestra seeks to create the type of unity which is not a mechanical uniformity. Rather, it is a unity that has at its heart respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. We treasure, and work to bring the best out of each other.
We are an ecumenical ensemble, respecting our individual faiths and spirituality, including secular spirituality and, through music, express our desire to contribute to creating a better, more just society.
We seek to harness the power of music to bring joy to others, elevate minds and give expression to the heart. Jazz is a unique art form in its ability to speak to people of all backgrounds regardless of age, ethnicity, social position, nationality or gender.
From its roots in African American culture, emerging from the trauma of slavery, one of the most tragic and heinous episodes in human history, jazz has been embraced globally, and has given voice to optimism in the face of adversity and oppression. Looking to the future, we offer a model of solidarity among people working for positive change in the world."
