Join Paul Grabowsky AO and the top graduating jazz musicians from the Elder Conservatorium of Music for a night of world-class performances.

Paul Grabowsky is one of Australia’s most distinguished artists – a pianist, composer, arranger and conductor. He has been a director of some of Australia’s most prominent arts festivals, the composer of nearly thirty feature film scores, and several works of music theatre, the founder and leader for nineteen years of the Australian Art Orchestra, and an executive at the ABC.

Whether as composer, teacher, television personality, mentor or arts advocate, for him, this is all informed by his work as a pianist, and composer, particularly in the field of jazz, where, according to him, ‘the piano never lies’.

His musical journeys have resulted in collaborations with musicians from many countries, not least with the First Nations peoples of Australia, and those journeys continue. Among his many awards are five ARIAs, the Melbourne Prize for Music and an H.C. Coombs Fellowship.

Do not miss this very special evening in the Ballroom of the Hilton Adelaide, including beautiful food and wine, hosted by the incomparable performer and producer, Sidonie Henbest.
