a Loft Production - The Ostara Project

Date/Time: Monday, September 16, 2024 at 7:30 PM

Venue: Concert Hall at Victoria Hall

Ostara ProjectThe Ostara Project, an all-female, all-star jazz sextet was formed by award-winning bassist Jodi Proznick and pianist Amanda Tosoff. Ostara showcases the strength and creativity of Canadian women in jazz. Membership in Ostara is fluid but what remains constant is that all of its members are top-tier musicians, composers and bandleaders who reflect the geographical, cultural and creative diversity of Canada's musical landscape.

Ostara’s debut album (Cellar Live, 2022) featured the compositions and talents of seven musicians who collectively hold nine JUNO nominations and three JUNO awards. This first iteration of Ostara featured Joanna Majoko (vocals), Rachel Therrien (trumpet), Allison Au (alto sax), Jocelyn Gould (guitar), Sanah Kadoura (drums) and Amanda Tosoff and Jody Proznick on piano and bass, respectively. In Fall 2023, Ostara undertook a tour and creative residency in Whitehorse, Yukon where each member explored their musical heritage and identity as Canadian settlers and citizens. The Yukon project included new voices: Laila Biali, and Shruti Ramani, Virginia MacDonald (clarinet), and Valerie Lacombe (drums). In a genre and industry where women have been severely underrepresented, the Ostara Project is a beautiful example of perseverance, community, and a deep love for the music: new growth rising out of darkness, stretching for new life, propelled by hope.

The Cobourg iteration of Ostara will include Jody Proznick, Amanda Tosoff, Rachel Therrien, Allison Au, Valerie Lacombe and singer Kim Zombik.
