22 Oct 2021 Once Only Event
The WA Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO) present “The Modern Masters”.
Did you know that big band music has continued to evolve and push boundaries from the Golden Age of Swing?
Composers such as Bill Holman, Bob Brookmeyer, Jim McNeely and Maria Schneider have used big band instrumentation to create some of the most creative and exciting jazz in recent decades.
The Wednesday Night Orchestra will be joined by Perth’s very own modern master on tenor saxophone, Dr Jamie Oehlers (WAYJO member 1987-93).
Join WAYJO for this special night, also premiering 2021 WAYJO Composer in Residence works by Brendan Keller-Tuberg (Australian Capital Territory) and Reece Clark (Western Australia).
Jamie appears thanks to WAYJO’s 2021 Major Programs Partner, Minderoo Foundation.
