College kids inspired as trumpet legend blows in
WORLD renowned musician James Morrison will perform along side some of his younger fans at a special concert this Thursday.
The jazz star has teamed up with the music ensembles from Springfield Anglican College and together they will jam for a night of classical and contemporary pieces in the auditorium at the University of Southern Queensland.
For student Brandon Inu, who also plays the trumpet just like Morrison, it is a fantastic opportunity to learn from the best.
"I really like his music. He is so good," he said.
"He is well renowned and inspirational, and I am looking forward to playing with him."
Springfield Anglican College head of creative arts teacher Anneliese Alloway said the show would be broken up into two acts.
"During the first act, James Morrison will be playing with two of our ensembles," she said.
"The kids have prepared some particular pieces which they would like to perform, and he will work with them during workshops earlier on in the day to help them perfect it.
"In the second act of the show, it will be just him performing, and he will perform a number of well known songs.
"He also really likes to interact with the audience."
The wider community is invited to come and enjoy the evening listening to one of the best musicians perform with some of the best up and coming names.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children.
Tickets can be purchased by phoning the school on 3818 5777.
The concert will begin at 6pm sharp.
