Join us for this wonderful concert, filled with nostalgia and memories, at the special matinee time of 3pm.

The Celebration of Swing is a big band concert, starring John Morrison’s Swing City, taking audiences on a musical journey through the history of the American big band swing era in the early 1940’s. This concert spectacular will feature 15 Australian musicians and singers, plus showcase two esteemed singers, Gregg Arthur and Jacki Cooper, and Sydney’s top instrumental jazz soloists.

Musical Director, John Morrison is recognised as one of Australia’s leading jazz drummers, band leader and educator.

The concert’s music repertoire will highlight the greatest Big Band hits of the 1940’s, featuring the music of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and more. This music and these timeless icons are still recognised and beloved after 85 years.

“Here is a great band making its mark in the 21st century with all the colour and trappings of a 1940’s Hollywood movie set, no wonder it’s a hit!” – Kevin James, The Australian
