Jazz @ Harry Pepper

Mia Barham Jazz Quintet

Part of the Live Music Concert Series presented by the South West Music Regional Conservatorium

On Saturday 28 October 2023 we held Live Jazz @ Harry Pepper featuring The Mia Barham Quintet.

The Mia Barham Quintet featured five exciting emerging musicians from Melbourne, Australia. They perform a mixture of jazz standards and original music composed by all members of the band. Their music provides an exciting new take on jazz traditions, whilst also maintaining its distinctive well loved sound. All advanced students from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.

We would like to thank Harry Pepper for hosting us for this wonderful event on the grass in the sunshine. The event was enjoyed by all who attended.
