Pharos ft. composition by Sophie Min

Pharos is an all-female ensemble consisting of a 6 piece horn section and 4 piece rhythm section. Formed by bassist Hannah James, Pharos features Australia’s most progressive, innovative female improvisors exploring the limits of modern big-band jazz.

Pharos has worked with a variety of renowned Australian jazz musicians like Sandy Evans, and made a name for themselves internationally, working with artists like Helen Sung (USA) and Silke Eberhardt (GER).

For their performance at the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival, Pharos showcases the work of Sophie Min – winner of SIMA’s 2020 APRA Emerging Composers Mentorship.

Sophie and her mentor, pianist and composer Barney McAll, specifically developed an innovative body of work for Pharos to premiere at the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival.
