Spectra Jazz Orchestra's Spring Shindig at the Red Rattler
Spectra Jazz Orchestra, a youth ensemble for young women and gender diverse musicians, are making their Red Rattler debut: a springtime Sunday afternoon of exciting music. Spectra will present two sets at the Rat, including tunes from their recent release Supernova, and some brand new material.
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 innovative Australian music. Spectra has been running since 2016 and has performed at some of Sydney’s favourite jazz joints, such as Lazybones and Camelot, as well as the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival, Manly Jazz Festival and more.
