Southern Cross Soloists

American classical music is filled with rags-to-riches stories of impoverished immigrants who went on to inspire not only classical music but entirely new genres of music worldwide, from jazz, blues and ragtime to rock ‘n’ roll.

This American melting pot of cultures created a rich source of inspiration that inspired a new class of composers, including George Gershwin, Aaron Copland and Arty Shaw. Likewise, in South America, the son of Italian immigrants Astor Piazzolla would go on to revolutionise the tango.

Making his performance and composition debut with Southern Cross Soloists (SXS) is Grammy award-winning guitarist John Jorgenson alongside SXS Didgeridoo Soloist in Residence Chris Williams for the SXS Didgeridoo Commissioning Project.
