Description:

Meet the orchestra as James and MSO Associate Conductor Benjamin Northey take you on a musical and educational trip through timeless jazz classics including Spencer Williams’ Basin Street Blues, Ray Henderson’s Birth of the Blues and Duke Ellington’s It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing). James and Ben will guide the concert providing stories on the music and composers from the legendary jazz scene, introducing musicians and their instruments along the way. This concert is the perfect way to discover just how vast and irresistible the world of orchestral music is and an exciting opportunity to hear one of the world’s greatest jazz musicians perform not only on the trumpet, but on a variety of instruments, enhancing the incredible power a live orchestra can deliver. This is a concert especially created for children aged 4–12, and their carers, designed to introduce them to the orchestra and the history of jazz music. Of course, orchestral music aficionados looking to share their love of music will also get a real kick out of these concerts. James Morrison is known throughout the world for his sheer brilliance as a jazz musician, educator and all-round entertainer. Founder of the James Morrison Academy of Music in Mount Gambier, he is constantly on the move, performing wherever fine music has an audience.
