The Chelsea Wilson guide to the 2018 Stonnington Jazz Festival

“Festivals are great opportunities to create different kind of experiences,” Chelsea Wilson explains. “A lot of jazz venues in town do not have the stages or infrastructure to be able to do something like that, so were very fortunate to have Chapel Off Chapel as a festival hub this year; it has lots of space for the bands to explore.”

Nick and I have also composed music with Lionel in mind, and so the music will accommodate and make way for his unique style of playing.”

Berardi/ Foran/Karlen: “Being Australian is a mixture of natural beauty and cultural diversity”
