UNT’S ONE O’CLOCK LAB BAND TO TOUR AUSTRALIA

The One O’Clock has been invited to spend two weeks of May 2016 in Australia. The trip will include:

  • Workshops and clinics at institutions such as the James Morrison Academy
  • Headlining performances at Generations in Jazz, the largest jazz festival in Australia.
  • Performances and clinics with more than 4,000 students from all across Australia.
  • Professional collaborations with numerous jazz artists including internationally-renowned artist James Morrison.

The One O’Clock Lab Band last toured Australia in 1986 under the direction of Neil Slater. This historic tour helped launch the career of several of our notable alumni: former One O’Clock Lab Band director Steve Wiest; Dave Pietro, saxophonist active on the New York jazz scene who has recorded with the Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra; Mike Williams, lead trumpet with the Count Basie Orchestra since 1987; and Tony Scherr, bassist on the New York jazz scene who has recorded with Norah Jones and guitarist Bill Frisell.

Generous support from our Australian partners, donors, and the UNT College of Music has helped us to raise more than 50% of our fundraising goal. In order to fully
fund the tour, we need to raise another $70,000 during the month of April, which will be matched by the UNT College of Music. We need your help to make this tour happen! Please consider making a contribution to the One O’Clock Lab Band’s Australia Tour by April 30, 2016. In addition to sending our students to Australia, your
gift could help to launch the careers of some of the world’s most talented jazz musicians.

Thank you for your generosity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Erin Smith at (940) 565-2243 or Erin.Smith@unt.edu.
