The Artemis Orchestra was founded with the hope of promoting women in jazz as musicians, soloists and composers. Less than a quarter of all professional jazz musicians world wide are female and this is something which we hope will change for the better in future. The goal is that having an ensemble like this, which is predominately female, will inspire young women in Perth to also consider taking on a career in jazz. For this performance, we will play the music of female Australian composers, such as Shannon Barnett, Meg Burstow, Louise Denson, Sandy Evans, Gemma Farrell, Sally Greenaway, Andrea Keller, Ellen Kirkwood, Alana Macpherson, Linda May Han Oh, Kate Pass, Venessa Perica and Candice Susnjar.
