James Morrison is acclaimed around the world for his virtuosity and musicianship. His concerts sell out across Europe, North America and Australia and MAPA is thrilled to be presenting him in this special event in Robert Blackwood Hall.
The James Mustafa Jazz Orchestra is one of Australia’s most celebrated and renowned large ensembles. Formed in 2013 by Australian composer, bandleader and instrumentalist James Mustafa, the group has gone on to record an award-winning debut album and performed numerous sellout shows across Victoria. The ensemble is a 20 piece jazz orchestra comprised of some of the country’s finest and most respected musicians. Their debut album The Last Sanctuary, released under the Jazzhead record label has been a best seller.
