December 2018 Newsletter

Melbourne Women's International Jazz Festival, Girls Do Jazz final concert, Composers Circle live recording, plus Mondays @ the Jazzlab and Transient Thursdays @ Uptown and more!


Hello!

I've just returned from a fantastic trip to UK, Poland, Estonia and Czech Republic. Performing with the Australian Art Orchestra and meeting Arvo Pärt were some of the highlights!!

Straight back into action here with the Melbourne Women's International Jazz Festival, which began last night and continues this evening with the Composers Circle (an ensemble I began as part of my Monday night Jazzlab residency).
We will be doing a live recording tonight and next Monday night. Please see details below.

Another special event is the Girls Do Jazz workshop series, which will be showcasing what we've been working on at a free concert on Sunday December 9 (4-5:30pm at the Jazzlab).

Details on all that plus more below.

Wishing you a safe and happy festive season!

Thanks for reading and supporting creative Australian music!

Warmest,
Andrea

The Girls Do Jazz workshop series, lead by Andrea Keller, ran monthly over five Sundays in semester 2, 2018. Along with MCM alumni tutors, and undergraduate volunteers, the students engaged in jazz and improvisation studies covering musics ranging from free improvisation, to tunes from the American songbook and those by contemporary Australian jazz musicians. This free concert showcases what they’ve been up to!
