Thrilled to have re-signed as Stonnington Jazz Artistic Director for the 2019-2021 Festivals! It really is a privilege and honour to work with local artists and to curate this iconic festival. The last three years have been amazing but I have so many more ideas for shows and events, so I’m ecstatic to have the next three years to program for you. Stay tuned for the first announcement in March 19!
To celebrate (and give the festival marketing team some new pics) I self-styled this photo shoot paying homage to some of my favourite Australian jazz artists, attempting to re-create their album covers. Not sure I really nailed it, but I had a super fun time trying to capture some of the Aus Jazz magic! Shout out to Nicole Cleary for shooting these and Chapel off Chapel for having us takeover the space for a few hours! Big love to Kerrie Biddell, Vince Jones and Judy Bailey for their incredible contribution to Australian music.
Love, Chelsea x
