The Monash University Jazz Orchestra
5.30pm - Sunday, February 12 - Cross Street Music Hall
The Monash University Big Band is an eighteen-piece ensemble that explores the stylistic history of jazz and the stage band/big band repertoire. The ensemble facilitates the development of students’ skills in improvisation, sight-reading, understanding of jazz styles and ensemble performance practices.
The Monash University Big Band has performed with international artists John Abercrombie, George Garzone, and Maria Schneider. This year, they will feature with Eddie Palmieri and his septet at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival and with Argentinian New York based composer Guillermo Klein.
