On Tuesday May 30 I’m lucky enough to be giving the second Jackie Orszaczky Music Lecture at the Basement. It is called meaning Each Note: Truth, Universality and Cultural Amnesia. Into it I’ll weave Jackie’s grand legacy as well as some more, er, opinionated thrusts.
After my half-lecture the Jackie Orszaczky Budget Orchestra will play two sets of music by or associated with Jack. The all-star band has singers Tina Harrod, Darren Percival and Virne Sanzone, drummer Hamish Stuart, bassist Dave Symes, guitarists Arne Hanna and Scott Leishman, keyboards-players Clayton Doley and Stu Hunter, trombonists James Greening and Anthony Kable and saxophonist Matt Keegan.
Here’s a little preview of the lecture in an interview I did with Andrew Ford on RN’s The Music Show:
It’s an early start: doors open at 7pm, and the action begins at 7.30. Should be a great night!
