with an opening event on January 15 at 2pm.

THE 2017 jazz year on Phillip Island will
kick off with the appearance of Juliarna.
If you were fortunate enough to see her
2016 performance you will not want to miss
her return this Sunday, January 15.

engages the audience from the first note.

range of tunes and she is ably supported
