The Joan has stepped it up again this year, bringing you some of Australia’s most acclaimed jazz and world music artists in its 2017 Sunday Sessions in Penrith.
Tapping into the laid-back Sunday vibe, these concerts all start at 5pm and will ignite your senses and leave you buzzing ready for the week ahead (but not home too late!).
Take time out to explore hard grooves and modern jazz; a chamber orchestra like no other and the powerful fusion of classical guitar and voice for music with a Latin flavour.
The Series opens on Sunday 11 June with Songs of the Latin Skies performed by songstress Katie Noonan and classical guitarist Karin Schaupp.
On Sunday 30 July audiences can experience the trailblazing work of Stu Hunter’s “the migration”.
Indulge yourself in a “breath-taking musical roller-coaster of hard grooves and multiple sound textures challenging the notion of jazz and contemporary improvisation.” (AustralianJazz.Net) as Stu and a ten-piece band perform the migration, a soul-searching and cascading response to modern life, love and cultural complexity.
Take a transformative journey at the series finale on 10 September with the Sydney World Music Chamber Orchestra’s Three Sides of Love and Death.
