The WAAPA Jazz Showcase – Featuring the CONTEMPORARY JAZZ, BRAZILIAN, ECM, NEW STANDARD & ADVANCED STANDARD ensembles from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
Come along and hear these amazing groups presenting the sounds of jazz through the ages and around the world. They will be entertaining you with compositions inspired by some of the most innovative artists of Jazz, Latin and Pop music.
These talented ensembles are made up of WAAPA Jazz students playing their take on tunes from the greats of the jazz music scene past and present. The ensembles draw from the repertoire of the Great American Songbook, to Brazilian masters, to the sophisticated sound of European artists such as Jan Garbarek and Kenny Wheeler and current contemporary jazz masters such as Chris Potter and Gretchen Parlato, and even re-workings of classic pop songs. The compositions have been creatively arranged and will feature the unique talents of each member of these fantastic ensembles.
