Benjamin Harrison

Benjamin Harrison is a multi-instrumental musician, composer and producer from Australia. He has performed and toured across five continents – most recently with Cirque du Soleil’s touring productions of Quidam, KOOZA, VOLTA and Alegria.

A versatile multi-instrumentalist, Benjamin plays saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor and baritone), EWI (electronic wind instrument), clarinet, piano, keyboards, synthesizers, guitar, bass guitar and other assorted woodwind instruments.

Benjamin grew up in Adelaide, Australia and began performing in musical productions from a young age, initially beginning studies on piano and violin at the age of four. During his early formative years, Benjamin received a scholarship from a special-interest music school where he received the opportunity to perform and tour nationally and internationally with several multi-award-winning ensembles—including a tour of China as an Australian cultural ambassador in 2003. During this period, Benjamin also achieved several other accolades including selection at the national Generations in Jazz competition playing saxophone in 2004, and as a pianist the following year.

Benjamin graduated from the Elder Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music Performance, specializing in Jazz Saxophone. During his studies Benjamin held the 1st tenor saxophone chair in the Downbeat magazine award-winning Big Band One, and in 2008, received an award from dB Magazine for Top Undergraduate Saxophone.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
