Penrith City Council is proud to be a sponsor of the inaugural International Penrith Jazz Festival.
Penrith City Mayor Kevin Crameri OAM said the festival will be held at the world-class Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre from 12 November to 14 November.
“Jazz aficionados are in for a real treat with some of the best jazz acts around descending on Penrith,” Councillor Crameri said.
“Performers include The James Morrison Sextet and jazz vocalist Emma Pask, John Morrison Quintet, Swing City Big Band, Gary Daley Quartet and Bird Yard Big Band.
“This festival is yet another example of the wide breadth of music and performance that the Joan provides year in and year out for Penrith City residents.”
Director Penrith Conservatorium of Music Valda Silvy said: “This is an opportunity for the people of Penrith to listen to some of the great legends of jazz over a weekend at the Joan.
“It’s also an opportunity for the Joan to present a program dedicated to jazz enthusiasts. It’s the first time we’ve hosted anything like this but I’m sure it won’t be last.”
