SYDNEY'S brightest young musical talent is ready to knock visitors' socks off at the Australia Pavilion.

Those playing at the pavilion through July 16 include three ensembles from the University of Sydney's Conservatorium of Music - its Jazz Big Band, Percussion Ensemble and Saxophone Ensemble.

Their fresh and exciting approach to music reflects the dynamic, creative character of the arts scene in Australia, said Lyndall Sachs, commissioner general for Australia.

The three ensembles are among more than 150 artists taking part in the cultural program at the Australia Pavilion.

Members of the Jazz Big Band are chosen after a competitive audition process, ensuring that only the best perform in Shanghai.

The Percussion Ensemble is drawn from elite students who toured in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan last year.

The Saxophone Ensemble performs original Australian music.
