Event description
Music and stories with guitarist Tom Ferris.

About this Event

Tom has lived and breathed music since he first picked up a guitar at the tender age of 8. Over the years, he has evolved in an industry that is considered one of the most fickle and difficult in which to remain relevant. He attributes his longevity in the business to his ability to sight read, his excellent communication and interpretation skills and his appreciation of all genres of music.

His professional experience includes studio work on feature films 'The Rocket', 'Romulus My Father', 'Australia', 'Splash', 'George of the Jungle' and 'South Pacific'. He has added his touch to numerous documentaries and jingles for composers including Jan Preston, Caitlin Yeo, Peter Best, Les Gock, Mike Harvey, Pat Aulton and Mike Perjanik.

On the live scene, Tom has worked with international stars Josh Groban, Engelbert Humperdinck, Harry Connick Jnr, Glenn Close, Cilla Black, Jackie Trent and Tony Hatch, Russell Watson, Elaine Paige, Jane Oliver, Vera Lynn, Katherine Jenkins, Petula Clark and Sir Tim Rice.

Australian artists he has worked with include Kate Ceberano, Tania Doko, Connie Mitchell, Dami Im, Ross Wilson, and Emma Pask. Tom was a featured artist at the 2018 Australia Day concert held in Barangaroo alongside iconic DJ PeeWee Ferris.

Toms theatre credits include 'Westside Story', 'Showboat', 'Chicago', 'Burn the Floor', 'Book of Mormon' and 'Jersey Boys'

He is a passionate educator having been on-staff at the Australian Institute of Music for the past 9 years and in 2018 was appointed visiting guitar tutor St Aloysius College in Sydney.

If you are a guitarist from beginner to advanced come along enjoy Toms playing, some stories and ask some questions.

This is a free event but due to COVID restriction we have limited spots available and must be booked in advanced.
