For This Moment

For This Moment is a new collaboration between two Sydney based creative musicians and composers, Jenna Cave (originally from ACT) and Keyna Wilkins. Limited only by their chosen instruments and their imaginations, this music explores the ways in which melodic lines can meet in free improvisation to create a meaningful and cohesive musical whole. Nothing is off limits, with broad influences ranging from folk melodies to impressionism, contemporary and free jazz to minimalism, and 20th century classical music to the blues.

Jenna Cave is a composer, saxophonist, vocalist and conductor/band leader. She grew up in Canberra and studied jazz composition and performance at the Canberra School of Music, graduating with honours in 2006. She is most known for her work as the director and resident composer of the 18-piece Divergence Jazz Orchestra with their two albums featuring her music: The Opening Statement (2013) and Fake It Until You Make It (2016), receiving local and International acclaim.

Keyna Wilkins is a versatile composer, flautist, pianist at home in many musical worlds. With international classical training she has branched into jazz, flamenco and free-flowing improvisation and performed with a diverse range of ensembles. Her music is published by Wirripang.

Happening Sunday 15 October from 3pm at Greenaway Studio in Chapman ACT. $20 per person. Bookings essential, click here for more information on tickets and the location.
