MJC Presents: Katarzyna Wiktorski Octtet
Sunday, August 14, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Doors open at 7:00 pm
After independently releasing her lockdown octet EP From a Distance, Kat’s octet ensemble is returning to the Jazzlab, with the support of the Melbourne Jazz Co-op.
This project celebrates the fusion of jazz, classical and improvisation through a dynamic group of players. Kat’s compositional approach strives to create balance between complexity and simplicity with an overall arc of emotional sentiment and storytelling. The ensemble will perform a collection of new works exploring reflections on extended Melbourne lockdowns and themes of mental illness, grief, light, and change. The set will also feature fresh arrangements of previous releases and covers.
