James Morrison with his Academy Jazz Orchestra

Noted for remarkable musicianship and an incredible ensemble performance, the James Morrison Academy Jazz Orchestra is a 20-piece, big jazz band. The orchestra is directed by James Morrison himself, one of the best known jazz musicians the world over.

Expect an evening of toe-tapping, head-nodding and smooth tunes with international jazz hits, original compositions by Australian artists and original arrangements from budding young composers.

The orchestra has performed to standing ovations in New Orleans, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School in New York, and Chicago’s renowned Green Mill Club. The orchestra boasts performances with stellar musicians, such as Grammy Award Winner Wycliffe Gordon, Grammy Award Nominees The One O’Clock Lab Band, and Aria Award Winner Kate Ceberano.

This highly acclaimed performance will be a musical highlight of the year.

A special workshop with the one and only jazz legend will be held on the afternoon of this performance. Find out more here.
