Concerts will be live-streamed from WAAPA’s Facebook page, from 1pm – 1.40pm every Tuesday until September. Tune in to experience some incredible live music from talented local musicians!
Tuesday, 4th August – Jamie Oehlers and Tal Cohen
Featuring two of WA’s finest Jazz musicians, both alumni of WAAPA, Tal Cohen (USA) and Jamie Oehlers come together to present their original dynamic music to get you out of your iso-funk.
Cohen and Oehlers have been collaborating for the past 10 years, producing the albums ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ with Ari Hoenig, ‘Yellow Sticker’, ‘Gentle Giants’ with Greg Osby and their duo album ‘Innocent Dreamer’. Luckily for us, Tal came back to Perth as the lockdowns began in the US, so this is a unique opportunity to see another Perth-raised musician who is dominating the international jazz scene alongside the winner of the World Saxophone Competition and WAAPA’s Associate Dean of Music, Jamie Oehlers.
Performed by: Jamie Oehlers (saxophone) and Tal Cohen (piano)
Music Director: Jamie Oehlers
When: Tuesday 4th August, 1pm – 1.40pm
