    Event description

    Spectra Jazz Orchestra are back at the friendly and fun Petersham Bowling Club, for a special Mother’s Day celebration! Also featured will be Harri Harding and his upbeat 7-piece band of stellar musicians! Treat your Mum to an afternoon of musical cheer and friendly community vibes.

    Spectra Jazz Orchestra is an initiative for young women and gender diverse musicians which builds a bridge between music education on the secondary and tertiary levels, into the professional music world. As the wider jazz community consists predominantly of male musicians, Spectra also empowers and creates a supportive space for its members to grow as musicians. They play a fun and diverse range of jazz and jazz-adjacent works, with an emphasis on adventurous Australian music. Spectra has been running since 2016 and has performed at some of Sydney’s favourite jazz joints, such as Lazybones, Camelot, the Red Rattler and more, and festivals including the International Women’s Jazz Festival, Manly Jazz Festival and Marrickville Music Festival. At this performance they’ll be bringing you fresh tunes by local composers, including some exciting premieres!

    Harri Harding and Friends have come together for this gig and the Sound Sorcery Jam for women and gender diverse jazz musicians finale party. Playing original compositions by trans saxophonist and composer Harri Harding, and a few tunes from Spectra's Ellen Kirkwood, this is a brassy party band! Featuring musicians Meklit Kibret, Kali Gillen, Hayley Chan, Sarah Homeh and Mel Mony, this is a lineup not to be missed!
