Do you yearn for the days gone by, where spinning around the dance floor to a live big band was your average Saturday night? Well, the Northern Rivers Conservatorium has got a real treat for you. On Saturday 3rd August at Lismore City Hall our very own Youth Jazz Orchestra and guest vocalists will present an unmissable evening of latin and swing big band tunes. Grab your dancing shoes, dress for the occasion, and join us for “Winter Latin Swing”.
The Studio at Lismore City Hall will be playing host for this special event. The bar will be open and dinner will be available for purchase. There will be much fun to be had as you take in the sounds of Latin Swing!
The Northern Rivers Youth Orchestra, or YJO as they are affectionately known, relish the challenge of mastering and performing Latin, Swing, Funk and Ballad tunes by composers and arrangers such as Sammy Nestico, Duke Ellington and Bob Mintzer. When you see YJO perform, you are hearing some of the most talented young musicians across the Northern Rivers region. In fact, many YJO alumni have gone on to further study at the some of the top tertiary institutions across the country including Brisbane Conservatorium and Monash University.
YJO perform regularly across the region and over the years have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such stellar artists as John Hoffman who has played with Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Paul Grabowsky and leading music educator and conductor Richard Gill.
So get your dancing shoes shined and we will see you there!
