The Golden Age of Swing

6 - 7 August 2021 His Majesty's Theatre, Downstairs at the Maj Buy tickets

Presented by WA Youth Jazz Orchestra

The 1930s were the Golden Age of Swing and the height of jazz as popular music. The clarinet was the instrument that shot Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Woody Herman into stardom and cemented them into jazz history...

Adrian Galante, Perth’s very own clarinet superstar, performs swing classics like Begin the Beguine, Flying Home, and Sing, Sing, Sing with the WAYJO MinterEllison Monday Night Orchestra.

Adrian appears thanks to WAYJO’s 2021 Major Programs Partner, The Minderoo Foundation.

"Adrian is that rare person who understands the 'performing' part of performing arts without any compromise in musicianship or passion for the music" - James Morrison
