Festival Description

It is held in Mount Gambier in May each year and brings together many of Australia’s most talented young jazz musicians to participate in and compete for the James Morrison BMW Scholarship, the Mount Gambier National Stage Band Awards and the Generations in Jazz Vocal Scholarship. These events have enabled us to further promote and profile young Australian jazz musicians. The weekend in May provides an environment for young musicians to perform and learn in a relaxed atmosphere, share fellowship with their peers, and the oportunity to hear professionals like James and John Morrison, Daryl Somers and Graeme Lyall perform.

Festival Dates May 3 - 5, 2013
