Lakecia Benjamin with Pharos

Concert or Performance

15 Nov 2019

Artist-in-Residence Benjamin has been collaborating with 10-piece jazz ensemble Pharos, formerly known as Sydney Women’s Jazz Collective. Formed as an initiative of the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival in 2016, Pharos create music that honours the traditions and skirts the edges of mainstream large ensemble jazz music, avant garde and world music, each year collaborating with international artists from across the globe. Performing arrangements of Benjamin’s compositions, alongside Australian works specifically composed for Pharos from composers such as Andrea Keller, Harri Harding and Ellen Kirkwood, this performance will also feature the premiere of a new work by APRA/AMCOS Young Composers Mentorship recipient, Melbourne saxophonist/composer Cheryl Durongpasitkul.
