Spring Soiree

On Sunday 17 November 2019 from 4pm to 6pm.  Australian jazz duo Rufus//Sheridan (CBR/SYD) will launch the physical copy of their latest release, Documentation.

The highly anticipated jazz record from powerhouse duo Victor Rufus and Tate Sheridan is an intimate exploration through the eras of traditional, modern and contemporary jazz, paying homage to the greats Jim Hall and Bill Evans while navigating the more obscure harmonic freedom of contemporary composition in an improvised duo setting.

Tickets $50 per person, Bookings essential at https://www.trybooking.com/BFVCW

Proceeds to Global School Partners, which facilitates partnerships between schools in Australia and developing nations to enable students from across the globe to connect, share and learn with one another.
