Recent WAM nominee, Alana Macpherson is an in-demand saxophonist and composer performing regularly around Perth in various jazz, pop, electronic and experimental ensembles. She has performed alongside many notable Australian and International artists, including James Morrison (AUS), Keith Tippett (UK), Junko Moriya (JPN), Evan Sherman Big Band (NYC) and Christiaan Meeas-Svensden (NOR). Her original ensemble, the Alana Macpherson Nonet, performed to a sold-out crowd as part of the Perth International Jazz Festival in 2017, and are heading into the studio April 2018 to record their debut album.
This will be one of the last Perth performances by the Alana Macpherson Nonet before Alana moves to Austria to undertake a Masters in Jazz Composition at the prestigious University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. The door money will go towards funding the recording of their debut album, to be released in July 2018. This is not one to be missed!
