Final Doctor of Musical Arts Recital


So this is it! After four years of hard work, my final recital is fast approaching. It will take place on the 19th April, at 7pm at the Music Theatre, 6 Symonds St, University of Auckland.

Like my last recital (with tunes written in New York), this one again showcases my own compositions, this time inspired by a recent working retreat at Whatipu Lodge, on the wild west coast of Auckland, NZ. I spent a week there and crafted the pieces that you will hear at this event.

“So many jazz pieces I come across seem predictable and the same old territory, that I am surprised when someone truly fresh and original comes along. I find myself going over Mark’s pieces in detail, savoring the interesting twists and turns he comes up with” – Gary Burton

More details to follow, but for now it would be wonderful to have your support for this event, so if you can, please put a note in your diary. Confirmed players are Jason Orme, Jo Shum, Chris Mason-Battley and Mike Booth. I hope to see you there! Mark
