Be dazzled! It's a night of jive and groove as our Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Litton jazzes up the stage as both conductor and piano virtuoso. Relax and revel in the soulful blues, wry humour and sparkling glitz of jazz from two different composers Gershwin and Shostakovich - worlds apart, yet crossing their rhythms.
