International Jazz Day
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre
Musical director and saxophonist Adam Page leads a stunning array of local, national and international performers in a global celebration recognising the incredible art form of jazz. The show features some of the world’s best jazz talent including award winning Emma Pask, who has firmly established herself as one of Australia’s favourite jazz vocalists.
Special guests include two international award winning musicians from UNESCO Creative Cities of Music – multi-instrumentalist and film composer Jonathan Crayford (Auckland, New Zealand) and contemporary jazz saxophonist Helena Kay (Glasgow, Scotland).
Along with talented Adelaide musicians Kyrie Anderson on drums, double bass player Bonnie Aué and Thomas Voss on Trombone, the ensemble will perform familiar jazz standards reimagined and original compositions from Jonathan Crayford and Adam Page.
