Perth International Jazz Festival 2021: The Elephant in the Room
Perth International Jazz Festival 2021 presents The Elephant in the Room by the Artemis Orchestra.
The Artemis Orchestra was founded by Gemma Farrell in 2017 with the hope of promoting people of marginalised genders in jazz as musicians, soloists and composers. Less than a quarter of all professional jazz musicians worldwide are female, and even less are non-binary and transgender and this is something which we hope will change for the better in future.
The Orchestra is no stranger to PIJF – having performed at the Festival in 2018, 2019 and 2020. They’ve also collaborated with the Perth Jazz Society and with the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra, making up a band of WAYJO’s young women and non-binary members with Artemis’ professional musicians.
