The ANU School of Music is reaching out from behind brutalist concrete walls, to present FREE weekly lunch time concerts in the Pop-up Village venue. Every Tuesday from 12.30 to 2pm during teaching periods, we will present musicians from a range of musical styles and backgrounds: students, staff and Alumni from the School of Music but also talented musicians, both students and staff from across the campus.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. It can be an escape and music can have a profound influence on our emotional, cognitive and physical health. Call in for lunch, make a date with bae.
The Launch of the School of Music Pop-up Venue concerts will feature ANU School of Music students the Prisoners of Jazzkaban and The Honey Joys for your enjoyment!
Prisoners of Jazzkaban
The Prisoners of Jazzkaban are an ANU based jazz ensemble centred in funk, latin and fusion music. The prisoners have been playing together for almost six months and have established a repertoire of standards and originals both vocal and instrumental. You can find and follow the Prisoners of Jazzkaban on Facebook.
The Honey Joys
The Honey Joys are an all female jazz ensemble featuring Tahlia Makunde (vocals/piano), Leilani Wagner (Vocals/piano), Hayley Manning (bass) and Melinda Fule (Saxophone). The performers come from a variety of backgrounds, with a mixture of jazz, classical, and contemporary musicians. Tahlia, Leilani, Hayley, and Melinda met at the School of Music and started The Honey Joys to put a unique perspective on existing jazz standards and create a space for contemporary music within the jazz genre.
