The gala Opening night of the Melbourne International Jazz festival was a sell out! The rain came in, but it did not dampen the enthusiastic patrons from arriving on time.
After short introductions by Festival Director Michael Tortoni, and Pianist /Vocalist Sarah McKenzie, Sarah kicked off the Festival with with her rendition of Big Yellow Taxi. Sarah then introduced the next two well renowned Jazz vocalists Michelle Nicole and Mahalia Barnes.
Here are a few photos of the night.
