Jazz musicians Alicia Kidd (guitar and vocals) and Hank Trenton (double bass) start off our Thursday Heritage Concert Autumn series programme in honour of ANZAC day - to acknowledge those lost, and the sacrifices made. Taking a New Zealand perspective, Acrylic will perform love songs written during the war, such as “Pōkarekare Ana;” uncovering the stories often forgotten with such well-known tunes. Alongside this they will also perform typical songs from the time, such as “Pack Up Your Troubles,” arranged in their unique jazz style. They will explore the introduction of jazz into European society by the African-American armed forces drawing parallels with the experiences of the Maori Battalion on the battlefields. Through this remembrance concert Acrylic aspire to bring hope, as well as reflect the real grief associated with war and continued themes relevant to our society today, while bringing an enjoyable experience to listeners through their sensitivity and skill. Acrylic are part of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s “Aspiring Musicians” programme
