About this performance

The Melbourne International Jazz Festival together with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra present a spectacular international collaboration to open the 2021 Festival.

In a joyful celebration of the MIJF's return to the Hamer Hall stage, this performance features arrangements by Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra's Christopher Crenshaw (USA) and Melbourne's own Vanessa Perica.

The stellar musicians of the MSO will be joined on stage by the Vanessa Perica Orchestra and an all-star lineup of Australian vocalists including Katie Noonan, Vince Jones, Harry James Angus, Kylie Auldist and Thando with MC Eddie Perfect.

Join us for an evening of jazz standards, laughs and orchestral brilliance.

Orchestra safety on stage
The safety of our musicians, staff and audience remain the highest priority as we return to the post-COVID concert hall. In conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria and Arts Centre Melbourne, the MSO has begun rapid-result, asymptomatic testing for all members of the Orchestra and on-stage production staff. As such, you may notice that our musicians are not wearing masks while performing, and that they may be spaced more closely together than previously.

Stay tuned. Sign up.
