Since 2001 the Wollongong Conservatorium has been a hot spot for jazz education. Under the direction of Eric Dunan, a professional trumpet player from San Francisco, the program has seen a large number of former students go on to become some of the most respected jazz artists in the country. This performance will see the return of several former students coming back to perform some high energy contemporary big band music along side some of the next generation of jazz stars. The award-winning Wollongong Conservatorium Jazz Orchestra is the flagship ensemble of the highly regarded jazz program at the Conservatorium. The band has toured internationally and performed with numerous Australian jazz artists including Sandy Evans, James Morrison, and James Greening. In 2018 the jazz orchestra premiered two new works by Australian composer Jeremy Rose of The Vampires on a tour of the West Coast of America. This concert will feature five special guests making it a truly special event.
