“Jazz was the first music I heard and sang, and I can’t wait to share my love of it through the songs that your whole family may already know and can certainly enjoy together! And what better place to do it than in Sydney’s most iconic children’s theatre, Monkey Baa, at Darling Harbour, which is in the heart of this year’s Vivid Sydney Festival” – Justine Clarke
The first Jazz Jam performance will take place on Friday 24th May at 6pm, which will coincide with the opening night of Vivid Sydney Festival, the largest festival of light, music and ideas in the southern hemisphere.
ARA will be playing a special role in bringing inclusion to Vivid Lights 2019 through our involvement with the Tumbalong Lights playSPACE inclusive playground, which is set to return to the Darling Harbour precinct this year, adjacent to The ARA Darling Quarter Theatre. We are proud to be partnering with industry leaders Cushman & Wakefield as well as fellow light contributors Minter Ellison, Charter Hall, Suncorp and Westpac to deliver this magical and inclusive playground for the second year in a row.
