The WAAPA Jazz Showcase – featuring the CONTEMPORARY, BRAZILIAN & STANDARD jazz ensembles from WAAPA.
Come along and hear this trio of ensembles bringing the genres of Latin, Contemporary and Jazz standards to your ears. They will be performing in 30minute sets and will entertain you with a repertoire inspired by the innovative artists of the Jazz and Latin culture.
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. Each ensemble will draw from the Standards repertoire and Brazilian masters, to the sophisticated sound of the current contemporary Jazz masters such as Chris Potter, Gretchen Parlato, Ben Wendel and Kurt Rosenwinkel.
