Let WAYJO take you on a bold jazz journey from Basie and into the big band beyond…

Enjoy classic big band repertoire, artfully paired with reinvented contemporary jazz standards, plus the premiere of exciting commissions by Downbeat award-winning composer and arranger Alana Macpherson (WAYJO member 2010, 2012-17) on her recent return from Austria.

Alana’s music is inspired by the composer’s reflections on Australia, composed during several lockdowns in Europe throughout 2020.

There’s something for all contemporary and jazz music fans in this bold big band program that’s simply not to be missed!

Alana appears thanks to WAYJO’s 2021 Major Programs Partner, Minderoo Foundation.
