At the end of last term, Emmanuel students were enthralled to be a part of a Jazz workshop with James Morison - Australia’s Premier Jazz Musician and Artist. The 2 hour workshop involved a masterclass with the Emmanuel Big Band. James is not only an outstanding musician, but also an excellent communicator of all things music. Students were able to ask questions and learn more about their craft.
Some of the highlights included:
- James accompanied the Big Band in “Song for Tuck”
- James gave advice about performing and letting your instrument speak
- Time for signatures and photos
- James performed a solo on Ryan Kelly’s new Trombone
Overall it was a truly inspiring event and the students and teachers were very blessed to have such a high calibre musician spend some quality time with us here at Emmanuel.
