Internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Joe Chindamo and leading Australian classical violinist Zoë Black form a unique musical partnership. The duo showcase their unique and edgy approach to contemporary classical music, blending the rigour of classical music with the excitement and urbanity of jazz. Their first album Re-imaginings was released in 2012, quickly followed by two recordings, Dido’s Lament and The New Goldberg Variations, which each received ARIA nominations for best classical release of 2014 and 2015 respectively. Their latest recording Symbiosis is due for release in 2018.

6–7pm and 7.45–8.45pm

Vocalist and trumpeter Audrey Powne’s music exhibits sophistication and virtuosity rarely demonstrated at her young age. Known for her nuanced soulful vocals, Australian soul fans will know her from performances with Vince Jones, Terence Blanchard, James Morrison and Leroy Jones, and for fronting Leisure Centre (FKA The Do Yo Thangs) and her own pop/soul project Au Drè. Audrey has performed for the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Face The Music, Melbourne Music Week and Stonnington Jazz Festival, and for NGV Friday Nights she will be joined by pianist James Bowers, one of Melbourne’s most exciting young jazz musicians.
