Cooper & Hammond: Classics, Gypsy and Jazz

Cooper & Hammond: Classics, Gypsy and Jazz

Violinist, Ian Cooper and pianist, Ambre Hammond will fly across North Queensland and Cape York, painting a musical landscape that encompasses not only classical but a vivacious blend of gypsy and jazz. The itinerary is as eclectic as their collective styles, fulfilling Queensland Music Festival’s (QMF) pledge to provide regional and remote communities with access to world-class talent.

Starting in Mount Isa, these incredible artists will visit Weipa, Aurukun and Hope Vale to deliver educational workshops. They will continue their journey on to Atherton, Innisfail, Charters Towers, Gladstone, and for the very first time for QMF, Burketown and Palm Island. The tour connects with each community through performances and workshops, and our talented travellers are just as thrilled to be visiting as the towns are to host them.
