Green Jam Sessions are back
Madeleine Dale | On 18, Mar 2015
Is the heat taking its toll? Are the weeks starting to drag, now that itâ€™s March? Friday night fund already getting dangerously low? If your answer to any of the above is yes, never fear. QPACâ€™s Green Jam Sessions are back every Fridayâ€”and theyâ€™re totally awesome and totally free.
Playing a mix of jazz standards, contemporary grooves and laid back funk, students from the Queensland Conservatorium are taking over the Melbourne Street Green to ease you into the weekend with style.
Every Friday afternoon from 5pm QPACâ€™s gorgeous green space will be filled with fairy-lights, delicious food, and some of the cityâ€™s finest young musicians, as the sun sets and the weather slowly takes a turn towards â€˜bearableâ€™.
Melbourne Street Green is one of Brisbaneâ€™s loveliest oasesâ€”screened from the hustle and bustle, dotted with trees and peppered with very comfortable chairs. And to help properly put the working world in the rear-view mirror, the Green Jam Grill will be cooking up a range of mouth-watering snacks, supplemented by a fully stocked bar.
It simply proves the old adage: if autumn wonâ€™t come to Muhammad, Muhammad will go somewhere where people are still enjoying summer. And certainly thereâ€™s no better place to take in the last of the warm weather.
The full program for this yearâ€™s Green Jam Sessions is as follows:
|20 Mar||Billy Saunders Quartet|
|27 Mar||Kayleigh Pincott Quartet|
|3 Apr||Good Friday â€“ No performance.|
|10 Apr||Eddie Gazani Quartet|

So come along to one of Southbankâ€™s greatest institutions, and stay cool with the merciful shade, dulcet tones, and cool drinks of QPACâ€™s Green Jam Sessions!
