End of an Era

We were all very sad to learn the news this week that Bennetts Lane Jazz Club will be closing in June 2015. The NPCO was ‘born’ at Bennetts with a trial performance of Gemma Turvey’s piano trio plus string quartet back in March 2011. Echoing the words of so many already this morning, jazz and improvised music will continue to flourish in Melbourne, thanks to the legacy of Bennetts Lane. Our gratitude to Michael, Megg, Jeremy and the wonderful team for their dedication over the years.
