Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Aura
Four-piece band Aura brings together Australia’s rising jazz stars.
Trumpeter Audrey Powne, alto saxophonist Flora Carbo, bassist Helen Svoboda and drummer Kyrie Anderson each have impressive solo careers. They bonded during an artist residency in the mountains of Alberta, Canada, and now bring their freshly inspired works as an ensemble back to their Australian home.
About the concert
Aura pays homage to the great chord-less jazz quartets of Ornette Coleman and Sonny Rollins, while drawing on contemporary Australian artists like Andrea Keller, The Necks and the Australian Art Orchestra. Different musical voices and improvisatory strengths come to the fore in works by each ensemble member. This harmonious approach in combination with the individual prowess of each artist presents a definite aura of magic from this youthful band.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
