More details ↓

Ball-Hanlon-Schulz is a collaborative ensemble that draws together the

diverse musical worlds of its three distinguished members. Multi-award

winning trumpeter Eugene Ball is widely regarded as one of Australia’s most

adaptable musicians; as at home performing early jazz (Hoodangers, John

Scurry) as with contemporary groups (Allan Browne Quintet, Andrea Keller

Quartet) and large ensembles (Australian Art Orchestra, Bennetts Lane Big

Band). Double bassist Ben Hanlon is a young lion of the orchestral scene,

and is currently one of the youngest members of the Melbourne Symphony

Orchestra. Accordionist Anthony Schulz is an improviser whose music is

steeped in the Western Art Music tradition. Anthony is best known for his

performances with Frock, Zulya and the Children of the Underground,

and cellist Rachel Scott. The ensemble’s music, composed by Eugene and

Anthony, is representative of this diversity: equally beautiful, confronting,

still, churning, sweet, daring.
