Stonnington Jazz Festival w/ Sandy Evans &
Transient Tuesday continues @ Uptown with the premier of a *new* trio and some very special guests...

I am super excited to announce that I have been selected as the recipient of the Merlyn Myer Music Commission for 2017!!
This means I will be writing a new work for Australian champions of new music Ensemble Offspring, which will be premiered at the MRC Salon on November 28, 2017.
The prospect of this is, of course, both utterly thrilling and terrifying, but being well-accustomed to these roller coaster rides, I am looking forward to it immensely!!!

The Stonnington Jazz Festival is on this month in Melbourne and I have the great pleasure of being a special guest with the Sandy Evans trio.

Saturday 13th May 7:30 – 9:30pm
Sandy Evans Trio (Sydney) w/ special guest Andrea Keller
Sandy Evans saxophones, Brett Hirst double bass & Toby Hall drums w/ Andrea Keller piano
