Wellington Jazz Club's Tribute to Colin Hemmingsen
16 October 2016
4pm - 7pm at Chancellor 1 at the James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel. Level 16, 147 The Terrace, Wellington.
On Sunday 16 October the Wellington Jazz Club will be paying a Tribute to Colin Hemmingsen, a musician who had successful careers in both classical music and jazz. In many countries what Colin Hemmingsen has done all his life could not be considered so unusual, but in New Zealand he has been a rarity.
This was recognized in the 2016 New Year’s Honours list with the awarding of Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to music. In this tribute concert, for the Wellington Jazz Club, Colin will play Sax and clarinets. In support he has chosen prominent jazz musicians with whom he has enjoyed playing;
Piano: Phil Broadhurst, Anita Schwabe,
Bass: Nick Tipping
Drums: John Rae, Lance Phillip
Sax: Louisa Williamson
