ASPIRE’s Jazz Under the Stars

Come along and enjoy a delightful live performance showcase from some of Australia and New Zealand’s most talented young musicians. Schools participating in the ASPIRE International Youth Music Festival will be performing live under the stars at one of the Gold Coast’s best beachfront venues – Kurrawa Park. It is important to all of us here at ASPIRE to offer students the opportunity to perform in a relaxed environment as well as the formal performances given as part of the festival competition. Jazz Under the Stars is also a lovely chance for the wider Gold Coast community to enjoy the music of our talented young participants.
