James Morrison to perform at Grammar
Arguably one of Australias most diverse and talented jazz musicians, James Morrison will step on stage this October to help Sunshine Coast Grammar School students fulfil a vision.
No stranger to the Sunshine Coast, James is a true virtuoso and as part of a series of not-for-profit concerts, backed by Ellaways Music Foundation, the event aims to help raise money for the Schools music programs and resources. Grammar is the only Sunshine Coast schools that James Morrison will perform at on this tour.
Head of Performing Arts at Sunshine Coast Grammar, Brendan Scully is delighted to have James Morrison perform at the School, hes an amazing multi-instrumentalist and a fine example of Australian talent in the music industry. "Having James perform at Grammar means a great deal to the School and wider community, as many of our students have a great love of Jazz and will relish the opportunity to see a master jazz musician live in concert," Brendan Scully said.
"We are also proud to be offering such a rich musical and cultural experience to the local community, who might otherwise have to travel further and no doubt pay more to see someone of James ability." With the funds raised from the James Morrison concert, the School are looking to purchase much needed instruments and sheet music for their award-winning ensembles. The benefits of music in education are well documented, but many school music departments need extra financial support and through concerts such as these James is able to help students advance their love of music and provide a platform for the next generation of musicians.
"We are looking forward with great anticipation to this concert and with the Grammar Big Band performing on the night, there is no doubt all who come along -- musicians and music lovers alike -- are in for a great evening of entertainment," Brendan Scully said.
