Wangaratta Jazz Festival returns to honour the human voice

Defying COVID-19, the chair of Wangaratta Jazz Festival says National Jazz Awards, held as part of the festival, offer a creative outlet and opportunity for artists during a year of unpredictability.

After a year’s hiatus to focus on its funding model and festival management, the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues returns for its 30th anniversary in 2020, including one of its most anticipated events, the National Jazz Awards.

Each year the awards focus on a different instrument – piano, guitar, bass, saxophone, brass, drums, or vocals. This year’s theme cycles back to voice.
