Event:
One of the truly great musicians of our time

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see one of Australia's most celebrated musicians in one of Melbourne's oldest churches.

On Friday 22nd of September, 2017, acclaimed pianist, composer, arranger and conductor, Paul Grabowsky, is presenting an extraordinary solo piano program in the architectural splendour of St Michael's Uniting Church. Tickets are now on sale for this anticipated event.

Paul has performed with jazz luminaries such as Chet Baker, Art Farmer and Johnny Griffin and is the recipient of many accolades and awards over his 40-year career, including 5 ARIA Awards.

It is difficult to describe Paul Grabowsky's career easily. He has been a director of some of Australia's most prominent arts festivals, the composer of nearly thirty feature film scores, and several works of music theatre, the founder and leader for nineteen years of the Australian Art Orchestra, an executive at the ABC, and is currently at Monash University, where he heads up the Academy of Performing Arts.

Whether as composer, teacher, television personality, mentor or advocate for the role of artistic expression as a defining attribute of contemporary life, for him this is all informed by his work as a pianist, and composer, particularly in the field of jazz, where, according to him, 'the piano never lies'.

His musical journeys have resulted in collaborations with musicians from many countries, not least with the First Nations peoples of Australia, and those journeys continue. Among his many awards are five ARIAs, the Melbourne Prize for Music and an H.C. Coombs Fellowship. In recognition of his achievements, he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2014.


Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear one of the truly great musicians of our time.
