16 October 7.30pm

The Joan continues to welcome audiences back with smaller-scale live entertainment. This Friday night, 16 October at 7.30pm, its first COVID-safe season, Live & Unlocked, concludes, with with two of the most progressive new voices in Australian jazz today, pianist Zela Margossian and saxophonist Jeremy Rose.

A kaleidoscopic ride through folk tunes, jazz, and fresh compositions with a nod to the fiery Armenian goddess of water, sea and rain, Nar; this musical journey sends a message of hope and celebration of new beginnings. Perfect as the world slowly awakens after a long cold lonely winter.

Jeremy Rose has been described as “one of the most creative and restless musicians in the Australian jazz scene” (Australianjazz.net). His career spans a dozen original releases with collaborative and solo projects across the world including The Earshift Orchestra, the Jeremy Rose Quartet and The Vampires.

Born in Beirut, of Armenian heritage, Zela Margossian is a pianist and composer who blends her cultural influences organically into her music, a beguiling fusion of folk, jazz and classical, carrying influences from traditional Armenian music, which she performs with her band, Zela Margossian Quintet.

Music performed at this concert has been developed as part of a new project for the musicians as 2020 recipients of the ABC’s new Australian Music Fund, highlighting the potential of Australia’s emerging composers and performers and the strength of its more established musicians.

The Joan has announced a special two-for-one ticket offer for this concert, with the code VISIONS, to be used to unlock the discount online.

The Joan is a registered COVID-safe venue.
