SIMA: Cool for School jazz program
The Sydney Improvised Music Association (SIMA) is launching a new school jazz program that aims at bringing students together with professional contemporary Australian musicians, both established and young/emerging artists - from Sandy Evans, Mike Nock, Judy Bailey and austraLYSIS (Roger Dean), to Phil Slater, James Muller, and others. The program will give high school music elective students and other secondary students the opportunity to hear jazz played in a club environment which also has the benefit of being alcohol free, with excellent seating, sight lines, sound, staging and lighting.
Full details about the program, including registration information, is available on the SIMA website.
