Event Details

2017 marks Dr Mace Francis’ 10th year as WAYJO Artistic Director, and we want to celebrate the occasion by recognising the contribution Mace has made to WAYJO and the national jazz scene.

As the sun sets at the spectacular Quarry Amphitheatre, the Monday Night Orchestra will get you in the mood presenting a suite of jazz classics, from Basie to Ellington and beyond.

Recognising the work WAYJO does in commissioning emerging composers, the Tuesday Night Orchestra will delve into our back catalogue, showcasing compositions by some of Australia’s finest jazz artists, including pieces from WAYJO alumni.

Once the sun has set more stars of WAYJO will come out to play. Mace Francis will take the stage with the Wednesday Night Orchestra to deliver a collection of his compositions for big band, including an all new commission specifically written for the occasion.

Please join with WAYJO as we celebrate the work Mace has done to develop young artists throughout his career making WAYJO a shining star in jazz with an internationally renowned reputation.

Jazz Under the Stars is wonderful culmination of all three orchestras work throughout the year, including announcement of the 2018 season program.
