APRA AMCOS is proud to support the second Jackie Orszaczky Music Lecture and Concert in conjunction with the Live Music Office to be held at The Basement in Sydney on Tuesday 30 May.

The Hungarian born Jackie Orszaczky (pictured), had an enduring influence on the musicians around him and it’s from these peers and players’ desire to honour Jackie’s memory that the concept for this lecture and concert was born.

The guest lecturer will be John Shand - playwright, librettist, author, journalist, drummer and critic. John has written about music (and occasionally theatre) for over 30 publications, including for The Sydney Morning Herald for over 24 years. His books include Don’t Shoot The Best Boy!, The Film Crew At Work, Jazz – The Australian Accent and The Phantom Of The Soap Opera. He also contributed to The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz.

“I am thrilled and honoured to be asked to deliver the second Jackie Orszaczky Music Lecture. I remain a massive fan of Jackie Orszaczky’s work in all its diversity, and if the pantheon of musicians has, like some people’s idea of heaven, multiple levels, Jackie’s place is assuredly in the topmost.” – John Shand

In this special event the late composer/performer’s work, musical ideas and philosophy will be reflected and celebrated. The night will perpetuate the legacy of a great Australian musician whose enormous influence over 30 years is not well known to the general public.

The lecture will be followed by a concert of Jackie’s music performed by members of his bands. They will perform a set of Orszaczky penned songs and instrumental pieces.

Tickets are $30 and available now. Click here
