What's On

Jazz in the Garden

Sat 24 Feb 2018
$35 adults
Live Jazz performed by Galapagos Duck in the Gallery Gardens

The National Trust's Norman Lindsay Gallery Jazz in the Garden is an eagerly awaited annual event that brings the iconic jazz band Galapagos Duck to the mountains. Every year a large and diverse audience settle in on the Gallery lawn to experience jazz performed by world class musicians.

Galapagos Duck began in the late 1960's while the members were engaged in a winter season at the New South Wales skiing resort 'The Kosciusko Chalet' Charlottes Pass. After returning to Sydney, the band continued to work and became well known in the Australian Jazz and music scene during the 1970's when it was the house band at the emerging Jazz night club, 'The Basement'.

Since these humble beginnings, 'The Duck' - it has been suggested - has become the best known jazz band in Australia and very well known throughout the country.

The band has worked - and continues to work - in Concert Halls, Night Clubs, at Jazz Festivals, in the Recording Studio and on radio and television.

Although the membership has changed, the direction of the band has always remained the same, to create a performance experience that - while jazz oriented - is able to be appreciated and enjoyed by everybody.

This celebration of Norman's birthday is also a celebration of jazz music at its most diverse and enduring, be prepared to be invigorated by these jazz musios, they are spontaneous and will capture the true essence of live jazz.

If you remember 'The Duck' from the 70's, or the Chalet, or the Basement then your love of jazz will be revived, these guys will present jazz like you've never heard before. Gather your family, or your friends and bring them along to this iconic event at the Norman Lindsay Gallery.

Adults $35, Gallery Members $30, Under 18 $20, Under 12 $10. Admission to the Gallery is included and the parking is free.
