Gig of the Week: All that jazz

Award winning Australian vocalist Emma Pask has firmly established herself as one of this country’s favourite
voices in Jazz.

Her effortless and honest stage presence combined with her powerful vocal ability, leaves audiences spellbound and inspired. Emma is sure to delight as she interweaves storytelling through timeless swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms, tender ballads and of course some raucous blues.

By request Emma performed at the wedding of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban and she had the honour of singing for Diana, the late Princess of Wales. She has sung in London at The Queen Elizabeth Hall with the BBC Concert Orchestra, the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, toured her band throughout Europe.

Emma has performed in China with The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Auckland with the NZ Philharmonic, and with the WA Symphony Orchestra in Perth. Emma also played support for American music legend George Benson on his Australian tour, and with Latin superstar Ricky Martin singing her praises, you won’t want to miss her live.

After spending the last 20 years singing by his side, Australian jazz virtuoso James Morrison says of Emma:

“Whilst it’s fashionable to be a jazz singer these days, she is the real thing!”

Appearing at The Duke of George in East Fremantle on Sunday 9th June for a special lunch time performance, tickets are available from dukeofgeorge.com.au/whats-on/
