Nat Bartsch (Solo) + Mia Barham Sextet (Debut)
Sun 18 June @ 7:30 pm$18 – $25
Genre-bending pianist/composer Nat Bartsch has developed an outstanding reputation for inimitably melodic, lyrical music making. She adeptly traverses between jazz and classical genres, leading to ARIA nominations for the past two years in jazz (Forever More) and then classical (Hope). Her opening set will incorporate pieces from both of these releases, performed on piano and integrating live ambient electronics.
Mia Barham is an emerging saxophonist who is currently studying her undergraduate degree at the V.C.A. She has performed as part of the MIJF and MWIJF and has worked with renowned musicians such as Andrea Keller, Ingrid Jenson and Angela Davis. Mia has also been the recipient of multiple scholarships and awards such as the Dr Phillip Law Music Scholarship, The Monash Jazz Music Scholarship and the Marion Thomas Award. With her sextet she will premiere five new original works that feature beautiful melodies and intricate and sensitive harmony. Mia Barham (alto saxophone and flute) collaborates with Ashley Ballat (trumpet), Dean Kalait (tenor saxophone), Pat Jaffe (piano), Monty Shnier (double bass) and Marissa Di Marzio (drums).
