The inaugural Jackie Orszaczky Music Lecture, in conjunction with APRA AMCOS, will be held at The Basement in Sydney on Tuesday 10th May.
The guest lecturer will be Lucky Oceans - performer, composer, ABC broadcaster (The Daily Planet), pedal steel virtuoso, two-time Grammy award winner and founding member of legendary US band, Asleep at the Wheel. The lecture will be followed by a concert of Jackie’s music by members of his bands
Jackie Orszaczky – a Hungarian Australian bassist, bandleader and composer based in Sydney - had an enduring influence upon the musicians around him and it’s from these peers and players’ desire to honour Jackie’s memory that the concept for this lecture and concert was born.
In this special event the late composer/performer's work, musical ideas and philosophy will be reflected and celebrated. It will create a focus for his many colleagues in music, his audience, friends and family to remember him and his work. It’s hoped that this will be an annual event.
The night will perpetuate the legacy of a great Australian musician whose enormous influence over 30 years is not well-known well to the general public. Jackie died in 2008.
