Be inspired by The Music of Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass

Transport yourself to New York’s Carnegie Hall, where distinguished guitarist Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald first performed together, resulting in multiple studio albums and a duo to die for.

The daughter of a ditch digger and a laundry lady, Ella Fitzgerald became one of the most popular jazz singers of all time, dubbed “The First Lady Of Song”.

Ella and Joe is brought to you with an epic performance from Mandy Meadows and Chris Williamson.

New Zealand born Mandy Meadows moved to Tauranga from London last year after a glittering overseas career performing all over Europe and holding residencies at some of the most prestigious hotels such as Savoy, The Dorchester and Corinthia Whitehall.

Chris Williamson is a guitarist and composer with a wealth of performing experience in NZ and overseas, teaching at the NZ School of Music/Te Koki, and earning Jazz Album of the Year with ’Stereoscope’.

COVID-19 Update

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Saturday afternoon tighter border controls, with everyone arriving in New Zealand having to isolate themselves for 14 days. There will be an official government directive on mass gatherings announced early next week.

We are awaiting details of the official requirements from government and local authorities and will update you as soon as possible if this could have any impact on this year’s National Jazz Festival and National Youth Jazz Competition.

Many thanks for your interest and support.
