Brisbane Big Band Festival

Senior Stage Band has graced the stage of the Brisbane Jazz Club to partake in the inaugural Brisbane Big Band Festival. The festival is a week-long event that provides performance opportunities for high school bands, community ensembles and professional big bands.

Senior Stage Band performed to a capacity crowd on Sunday afternoon, with raucous applause from the audience. Mentors, John Morrison and Jackie Cooper, had high praise for the ensemble after they played a killer set featuring solos from Lachlan A, James P, Angus C, Angelina K and vocalists, Alexandra J and Ben S.

Students and parents also able enjoyed other great performances from local high schools along with our very own Mr Pradella and his ‘Late Shift Big Band’ and, earlier in the week, the ‘Brisbane Contemporary Jazz Orchestra’ with Mr Sutch.

Thank you to Mr Pradella, Mr Prout and the Senior Stage Band for a great afternoon of jazz.
