Concert For Schools 2017 - Perth Concert Hall

2018 School Concerts and Workshops

First Friday of the month, March to June and August to November, WAYJO concerts and workshops for students will take place Downstairs at The Maj from 3pm. Our Musical Directors and guest artists will provide a 30-minute workshop followed by a 30-minute performance highlighting the aspects covered in the workshop.

Our focus for these events is largely on great female jazz artists, with female guest artists from Sydney, Melbourne, and New York (via Japan), as well as some of Perth’s leading musicians. We will also recreate a truly great jazz album and be joined by a visiting faculty member from KUG Institute of Jazz, Graz, Austria!

Enjoy and educational afternoon in Perth's most historic theatre. Tickets for staff and students are an absolute steal at $12 each for the first concert/workshop, then $10 for every other concert/workshop booked!
