Generations in Jazz is a spectacular gathering in Mount Gambier that not only attracts the jazz legends of today, but the bright stars of tomorrow - bringing together up to 5,000 of Australia’s most talented musicians, along with a growing list of global artists...
Secondary students from more than 150 schools around the nation compete in the Stage Band Awards, while individual Jazz and Vocal Scholarships are also highly coveted, helping to secure the musical destiny of individuals with enormous promise. And then there are the daily concerts – the sound inside the James Morrison big top pavilion, seating up to 6100 people in the middle of a paddock, is simply incredible!
The entire Generations in Jazz concept is part of a regional city’s commitment to encouraging young artists from around the nation to reach for the stars. With a combination of clinics and concerts, Generations in Jazz has become the ultimate three-day jam session for several thousand artists at varying stages of their musical journey. Generations in Jazz represents a wonderful opportunity to listen, perform, respect, and develop a true appreciation for a truly wonderful sound, and be part of a commitment to furthering jazz in Australia and beyond.
