Join us in celebrating Kingston’s mighty Wurlitzer 90th Birthday.
1 July 2019
You’re invited to join the City of Kingston as we celebrate the 90th birthday of our beloved Wurlitzer Theatre Organ with a swinging night of Wurlitzer-infused jazz with Shirazz and City Organist Scott Harrison.
Scott’s pairing with Melbourne’s traditional jazz band Shirazz is sure to be a spectacular night of celebration and a highlight in Kingston’s musical calendar, with the lush sounds of the Wurlitzer complimented by the brassy, yet intimate New Orleans-inspired jazz of Shirazz.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the amazing Shirazz for our sixth collaboration to celebrate 90 years of musical magic from the mighty Kingston Wurlitzer,” Scott said.
Despite its advanced age, the Wurlitzer is in fine tune, thanks to Wurlitzer guardian Scott’s and Council’s loving attention over the past 20+ years, and he’s looking forward to sharing its 90th birthday celebration with all community members. Book a table in a cabaret-style setting in the Grand Hall and wear your dancing shoes to celebrate the occasion in style.
Fine music, an iconic venue and an extraordinary musical instrument playing music to help you wash your cares away – what more could any music-lover ask for?
