Rockhampton music lovers have a great opportunity to hear world-class music, with Aussie jazz legend James Morrison performing at North Rockhampton High School Assembly hall from 12.30pm on Sunday, July 21.
Fresh from his role as Queensland Music Festival (QMF) Artistic Director, Morrison will join the students and staff of CQUniversity's Bachelor of Music (jazz and popular) for a special performance presentation as part of the 2nd annual CQUniversity Schools' Jazz Festival.
He will also perform alongside two guest clinicians for the festival who are world-class trumpeters and recording artists, Bob Coassin and Jeff Jarvis.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend for only $10 for adults, $8 for concesson and $3 for school-aged children, with tickets available at the door.
The CQUniversity Schools' Jazz Festival culminates in a Finale Concert featuring performances from all participating jazz bands, with around 200 young stars on show. This year, the Festival has attracted bands from the Rockhampton and Yeppoon regions as well as groups from as far north as Mackay and as far south as Brisbane.
Throughout the concert, from 7pm on Sunday July 21 at the NRHS Assembly Hall, there will be additional performances from ensembles from the Bachelor of Music program at CQUniversity and the presentation of awards to outstanding soloists and sections. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for concesson and $3 for school-aged children.
This opportunity is presented by Yamaha Music Australia, Creative Capricorn, Queensland Music Festival, and the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music (CQCM) based at CQUniversity.
