Callum Watson Group

An event every month that begins at 9:00pm on day Fourth of the month, happening 3 times
Callum Watson Group is an acclaimed ensemble combining Victoria’s leading young classical performers and jazz improvisers drawn from renowned symphony orchestras, big bands and world ensembles. The group is led by Callum Watson, emerging as one of Australia’s finest pianists and composers.
In this intimate performance Callum collaborates with leading melbourne classical performers Jessica Zuk and Joel Hands-Otte to explore modern approaches to the classical and jazz repertoire.
The night will begin with each musician in the group presenting their own short 15 minute “power recital” shining a light on their own practice. Expect an array of different instrument combinations including solos, wind duets and more led by the different ensemble members.
After interval, the ensemble will come together for a traditional piano trio performance exploring Watson’s compositions and arrangements derived from a wide variety of styles and influences.
“This residency really does close the generation gap and…has something for everyone.”
