The line-up includes legendary saxophonist Sandy Evans OAM who’ll be playing with Freyja Garbett’s “Music From the Waves” suite as well as Chris Field’s Afro-Indian Jazz Collective with trombonist James Greening (The Catholics, Mara).
Melbourne bassist Tamara Murphy will also lead her innovative Spirograph Studies ensemble. 

This exciting new WollCon Festival will showcase the next generation of jazz stars with performances from the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music Jazz Orchestra under the direction of David Theak. Additionally, Jazz Workshop Australia and local student groups from Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts, Smith Hill High School and all ensembles from the award winning WollCon Jazz Program, will perform in various rooms and spaces around the WollCon campus at Gleniffer Brae.
