Artistic Director Welcome (8.15pm)
Join us in welcoming SIMA’s incoming Artistic Director Zoe Hauptmann. Zoe achieved success as the Artistic Director of Jazzgroove (07/08), at which time she also co-directed the Jazz:NOW Festival with SIMA at the Sydney Opera House. More recently, Zoe has contributed to the 2015 Wangaratta Festival while managing a busy global touring schedule with the likes of Paul Kelly, Neil Finn and Missy Higgins. Learn more about Zoe tonight and what she has in store for 2016, followed by a 70 minute set by one of Zoe’s favourite Sydney bands, The Umbrellas. The Umbrellas (9pm) Led by Peter Dasent since 1985, The Umbrellas have evolved to become of one of Sydney’s most beloved jazz ensembles. Their “unpredictable, surreal, Italian-film-music influenced jazz” (Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet), makes any performance a joy to behold. His stellar band realises Peter’s quirky humour and music vision as they play original music inspired by Frank Zappa, Thelonious Monk, Nina Rota and Tango.
