The Golden Age of Swing – SOLD OUT

August 6, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on 07/08/2021 at 7:30 pm

The 1930s were the Golden Age of Swing and the height of jazz as popular music. The clarinet was the instrument that shot Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Woody Herman into stardom and cemented them into jazz history.

Adrian Galante, Perth’s very own clarinet superstar, performs swing classics like ‘Begin the Beguine’, ‘Flying Home’, and ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’ with the WAYJO MinterEllison Monday Night Orchestra.

Adrian appears thanks to WAYJO’s 2021 Major Programs Partner, Minderoo Foundation.
