Join USC’s Artistic Director of Music, Sean O’Boyle AM, and the amazingly talented guitarist Simon Gardner for a lunchtime concert that will explore jazz music from New York to New Orleans to Noosa and everything in between.

Thursday 26 April 12 – 1pm

Sean O’Boyle is well known for his orchestral prowess as a conductor and composer. There is an underlying jazz and blues side to this music. He began his musical career on the clarinet and performed across the world in classical and jazz. Following an accident to his left hand in 1992, Sean gave up playing and concentrated on composing, arranging, producing and conducting. In 2002 the Australian Broadcasting Corporation asked him to come out of ‘retirement’ and record an album of ballads on their jazz label. This led to appearances at Jazz Festival and tours of Australia, Germany and Switzerland.

Simon Gardner has released five solo albums and has produced albums for many artists. As a performer, he has supported artists such as Joe Satriani and is first call guitarist with the Queensland Pops Orchestra. Simon is a guitar examiner for the AMEB and Rockschool and regularly performs with a variety of bands and artists ranging from acoustic jazz to his own progressive instrumental band The Big Sky; including supports for Phil Emmanuel, Tim Gaze, Kevin Borich and the 2017 Melbourne Guitar Show.
