Divergence Jazz Orchestra feat. music of Jenna Cave

Since their inception in 2012, the 19-member Divergence Jazz Orchestra have performed over 20 concerts of Australian compositions, released two albums of original music, and have established a unique and inspired artistic voice. Directed by Jenna Cave (composer/conductor) and Paul Weber (trombone), Divergence boast a powerful and beautifully balanced orchestral sound anchored in groove, exhibiting immense sensitivity and subtly and breaking from the big band tradition of old. With a compositional focus, Divergence celebrates innovative Australian composers and improvisers who diverge from the status quo.

This concert will feature the music of co-bandleader and conductor Jenna Cave, with a varied selection of compositions written between 2006 and 2018. With a distinctive compositional voice which is both joyful and sophisticated, Jenna Cave’s music has been performed, broadcast and warmly reviewed around Australia and internationally. While co-leading Divergence, she is involved in other projects as a leader, composer, saxophonist and vocalist; and works with jazz orchestras and ensembles around Australia as a guest musical director and featured composer. Cave has been commissioned as a composer by leading Australian jazz festivals and ensembles and for the screen.
