In 2023, the Friday evening Gala Concert featured two powerhouse Australian vocalists, Thndo and Adam Lopez, backed by an all-star big band of leading Australian jazz artists and educators. No stranger to TV audiences through her success on The Voice, Thndo raised the roof of the biggest big top tent in the Southern Hemisphere with her powerful soul and R&B renditions of her original songs and some true big band jazz classics. Holding Guinness Book world records for his singing, Adam Lopez brought the Latin-American fire to the performance!

Swedish supergroup sensation Dirty Loops headlined the GIJ Gala Concert. Their sell-out concerts around the world and busy touring schedule are a testament to why they are one of the greatest live acts performing today. GIJ was delighted to host their exclusive one-off Australian performance. The opening act for this performance featured a quintet led by the 2022 James Morrison Jazz Scholarship winner Thien Pham and Vocal Scholarship winner Emma Simpson-Smith.

The finale concert saw the awards ceremony for the Stage Band, Vocal Ensemble and Small Jazz Combo divisions. It also featured performances by the Division One and Division Two Superbands comprised of stand-out students from the Stage Band Awards, a sneak peek at the Future Finalists and a performance from one of the elite vocal ensembles.
