After enjoying the day at Stroll and Swing on Palmerin this Saturday 27 July jazz lovers can stroll down to the Youth Stage in Leslie Park for ‘Twilight Jazz in the Park’, where from 4pm they will be welcomed into a winter vista of lights, colour and of course top live jazz performances. While heating and a ‘wall of protection’ will be provided, patrons are encouraged to don their quirkiest coats, beanies and scarves to fully enjoy the vibe of this “winter’s night out” jazz and dance spectacular!
Look forward to a diverse selection of intriguing jazz styles, including the dynamic, tight sound of the popular Revelation Big Band, the innovative Will Sargisson Trio, and lively Vocalist and composer Merinda Dias-Jayasinha. The grand finale features the Robyn Brown Quintet performing her ‘Down by the Riverside Showcase Spectacular’. Presenting a broad vista of jazz history, Robyn and her accomplished musicians will take you on a journey from the early roots of ‘slavery days jazz’ hits from outstanding original ‘Hall of Fame’ rock gospel singer Rosetta Tharpe, right through to contemporary favourites.
There’ll be plenty of opportunity to chill out and warm up with tantalizing hot food, Granite Belt wines, coffee and sweets on offer throughout the evening until 9pm. Tickets at $20 are available locally at Brysons Gifts, online at www.warwicktickets.com.au, and at the event.
Families are welcome – High schoolers $10 at the event, primary free.
