Now on PBS
Saturday 11 June 2016
Listen back to the delayed broadcast of the performance of the world premiere performance of “Confrontations” by Joe O’Connor.
Pianist and composer Joe O’Connor is the winner of the 2016 PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission. This is an annual PBS initiative promoting innovation and excellence in jazz composition.
The aim of the Commission is to provide support for composers at a pivotal point in their career, and to encourage creative flair and distinction in the jazz idiom. The PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission is an initiative of PBS 106.7 FM, in association with the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and is generously supported by Mark Newman.
