Event Details

In this special concert supported by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the Divergence Jazz Orchestra will be presenting a contrasting set of exciting new Australian music with special guest jazz legend Judy Bailey. Bailey will join Divergence on piano while debuting her work Contrasts, composed especially for this concert. The performance will also premiere new pieces Flamenco Dreams by Jessica Wells, known for her work as a film composer and orchestrator; Circles in Life, a minimalist inspired work by PhD composition candidate Nadia Burgess; and Twerking it Nyabs Style; a raucous New Orleans brass band-inspired tune from band leader Jenna Cave. Recent works by Steve Newcomb, Rafael Karlen and Bill Motzing and Cave will also be performed. Formed in 2012, the Divergence Jazz Orchestra is made up of some of Sydney’s most talented young jazz musicians, with highlight performances at the Jazzgroove Association, Bohemian Grove and the 2013 Autumn Vibes festival. Their music, by Jenna Cave and other Australian composers, is adventurous and captivating, drawing influence from many idioms including contemporary jazz, West African music, minimalism, swing, hip hop and New Orleans grooves.
