South Australian Weekender #3: Jazz, Food, Design, History and The Whitlams

This International Jazz Day Gala features the irrepressible James Morrison, along with Gordon Goodwin and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. This one-night-only event is presented by Adelaide Festival Centre in association with Generations In Jazz.

Celebrate International Jazz Day throughout April with the Government of South Australia, the Office of Adelaide UNESCO City of Music and Adelaide Festival Centre as we present ‘State of Jazz’ promoting jazz events throughout the state in the week leading up to the concert

Adding to the State’s growing calendar of music events, this jazz extravaganza stars James Morrison and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, in the world premiere of a new jazz concerto by Grammy Award winning composer and band leader Gordon Goodwin (USA).

The concert will showcase students from the James Morrison Academy in Mt Gambier and from the Julliard School of Music in New York as they combine to form the James Morrison Academy Jazz Ensemble.
It is such a thrill to celebrate International Jazz Day with so many greats of jazz… and where better to do it than in South Australia. ~ James Morrison

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre and The Music House

Can you believe it’s 25 years since The Whitlams launched onto the Australian music scene? To celebrate, the band returns to Adelaide and joins forces with the Adelaide Pops Orchestra to perform their classic hits including ‘Blow Up the Pokies’, ‘No Aphrodisiac’, ‘I Make Hamburgers’ and more. 

Superbly orchestrated with a sophistication of sound rare in a pop gig.  Beautifully crafted and textured arrangements, The Whitlams and orchestra deliver a show of wit, risk and flair.
When musicians of this calibre take the stage live, you remember why you go to see live music. — The AU Review
Years of touring have meant that their shows are immensely polished and professional yet still remain personal and light-hearted. They certainly showed why they have been such a long-standing force in the Australian music scene. — FasterLouder
