Happy Friday Give-Away: Tickets to the Melbourne International Jazz Festival

Yep that's correct, I have a double pass to 'Baby it's Cold Outside' on the opening night of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

Inspired by the popular ABC release Baby It's Cold Outside, the opening night of the 2010 Melbourne International Jazz Festival will celebrate the great jazz torch songs penned by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hart and made famous by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra.
For one night only, these timeless classics will be reinterpreted by an all-star cast of singers including Lior, Whitley, Clare Bowditch, Megan Washington and many more.
You don't have to be from Melbourne necessarily to enter the comp, you just have to be in Melbourne on May 1st so you can see the show.
Leave a comment on this post to be in the running, entries close next Wednesday 28th April, winners announced Thursday 29th April.

I would absolutely love these tickets. It'd be so great to take my dad, who weaned me on Cole Porter and the Gershwins, Ol Blue Eyes, Billie and Ella.
I do hope I win!

I love the idea that this event will bring a younger audience to jazz as it is interpreted by musicians not usually known for this style. Bring on the jazz standards by the new players!

Jenny said...

I was listening to 'Baby, it's cold outside' just last night - coincidence or cosmic forces pulling me to the jazz festival?!

Great photo by the way Lady M, reminds me of how much I would love to get dolled up and dance the night away at a 1940's club...

Christal rose said...

Sounds amazing Lady M! You are always so inspiring and brighten my day. It would be a wonderful farewell for me and my partner. His work visa is finishing so we will be moving to the USA on the 2nd of May. We met here in Melbourne 3 years ago and wish we could stay here forever! We will both miss the ever lively, enchanting, and musical city of Melbourne! x
