QUT Blackbirds are the QUT Music Society’s big band. A compilation of both students from all different faculties and non-QUT students, Blackbirds have a love for all things jazzy, gigging throughout the year both on and off campus. Blackbirds’ repertoire includes the old-school jazz standards you know and love, contemporary music, world music and some funky fusion, wiht arrangements featuring their vocalists woven throughout.
Past performances for Blackbirds include multiple QUT events, the QUT Ball, Brisbane Jazz Club, and Jazz on the Lawn, their signature performance event held at QUT’s Gardens Point Campus.
If you’re looking to further your love for Jazz music, QUT Blackbirds is the big band for you!
