2017 AUMO HIGHLIGHTS:
AUMO Prescribes Jazz (APJ)
This year we put on a brand new night at our new venue, Fowler’s Live. The evening featured the AUMO Big Band and Gooseberry Jam straight from their successes at Jazz Night earlier this year.
All proceeds from this event went towards the National Centre of Aboriginal Language and Music Studies (NCALMS). NCALMS is a leading body of teaching and research into Australian Aboriginal music and languages. Its projects engage Indigenous students and communities to strengthen culture and wellbeing. All proceeds from this year’s APJ went towards NCALMS to help fund much needed studio equipment for music teaching and media production work.
Location: Fowlers Live (68 North Tce, Adelaide SA)
Date and Time: 5th August 2017, 8-11pm. Doors will open at 7.30pm.
Dress code: Smart casual / cocktail
Transforming AUMO '17
The Orchestra's repertoire included pieces from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty, Beethoven's Egmont Overture and de Falla's Ritual Fire Dance. This year, Big Band (née Stage Band) featured Shofukan, Joy of Cookin', an arrangement of The Beatles' Blackbird and more. Vocal Ensemble brought Walking on Air and an ABBA Medley to the stage. The Lyrical and Hip-Hop Crews was this year also joined by the new Jazz Dance group!
This year, all proceeds from concert tickets, raffles, bake sales and sponsors went to a collaborative project between the Migrant Health Service and STTARS (Survivors of Torture and Trauma Assistance and Rehabilitation Service). They are organising a therapeutic social and cooking group for newly arrived refugee women. Groups such as this one have been shown to promote recovery and resilience in people who have suffered trauma.
