Ending on a hight note!

This year has been a big one for the Scotch Show Band.

Show Band

Highlights have included a support performance for Tom Burlinson, an outdoor concert at Cabrini Hospital and a performance at the 'Gourmet Jazz' festival. Most notable however, was the famous trumpeter Gary Grant. Mr Grant and his colleague, Dan Higgins were in Australia as principal artists in the Barbara Streisand Orchestra.

Both clinicians have worked with some of the biggest names in music and were an inspiration to hear. The Scotch Show Band performed brilliantly under the close scrutiny of over 300 students and staff from many music departments around Melbourne.

The 'Jazz Cabaret' features a great night of listening and dancing to the sounds of the big bands as played by the Scotch Show Band and the terrific Monday Morning Big Band.

We are also featuring one of Melbourne's premier jazz singers, Nina Fero.

Nina has performed at international jazz festivals, appeared on television and is an extremely popular performer around Melbourne. She will be singing great jazz standards and beautiful ballads from her latest CD. She will also be accompanied by her own trio and as an added feature will be joined by some of our own musicians.

This is sure to be a great night, but tickets are strictly limited. You can book seats or a table of ten by ringing Robyn Schulz in the Music School on 9810 4219.
