SYDNEY JAZZ ORCHESTRA
When the Sydney Jazz Orchestra lines up for its regular Christmas gig, there’s always a lot of thought on compiling the repertoire.
Tim Oram, SJO Director, composer, saxophonist and arranger have selected a fresh look at a musical Christmas in the big band genre and this performance will deliver some great new compositions and arrangements from the pens of well known and respected US writers, including Rick Hirsch, Chris Berg Mike Crotty.
Comprising seventeen of Sydney’s finest jazz musicians, the Sydney Jazz Orchestra has gained a reputation for consistently presenting stimulating and innovative performances. Tim Oram adds his own highly creative writing skills and constantly produces new arrangements.
Superb dynamics, flawless ensemble and section playing and cleverly crafted solos from individual members bring moments of brilliance from this finely honed group of players.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a Christmas concert with a twist!
