Michele Forbes, one of Australia’s leading jazz voices, will perform at the Melbourne Athenaeum Library as part of the library’s classical and contemporary music program.

She is currently resident singer for the Groovin’ Easy Orchestra Big Band and performs at various jazz festivals and clubs. She also tours nationally with Gold Logie award winner John Wood in their hit show ‘A Guy and a Gal’.
