Celebrating 25 years of Jazz Education in Christchurch, this concert brings together a stunning array of graduates, staff and current students in what promises to be a night of celebration not to be missed.

Founded in 1991, and formerly known as the Jazz School, Ara Music Arts has played a major part in the musical life of the city, through its training of many musicians, and performance at its facilities in High Street.

With alumni scattered around the globe, coming together for this special performance will be well known graduates now firmly established in Australia – Gerard Masters, Brett Hirst, Dan Kennedy, Susan de Jong and Oakley Grenell. Founding tutors Doug Caldwell, Bob Heinz, Ted Meager and Tom Rainey will perform, along with current students.

Other contributors include Gwyn Reynolds, Scott Taitoko, Andy Genge, Johnny Lawrence, Cam Pearce, Darren Pickering, Harry Harrison, Michael Story and singers Kate Taylor, Anna Whittaker, Jennine Bailey and Juliet Reynolds-Midgely.

Special performances by Oval Office, Departure Lounge, LA Mitchell and the Nativa Band, and Mukhlisa featuring Tim Sellars, Glenn Wagstaff, Tamara Smith and Tyson Smith will round out what promises to be a unique and special evening.

Presented by: Ara
