The Artemis Project

Led by WAYJO Young Women in Jazz Program Leader Gemma Farrell, the Artemis Orchestra provides a new platform for Perth’s leading female jazz artists.

Young Women in Jazz 2019

The WA Youth Jazz Orchestra’s pioneering Young Women in Jazz workshops, presented in partnership with the Sydney Improvised Music Association (SIMA), are aimed developing skills and building confidence of young women interested in exploring the world of jazz and improvised music.

An exciting collaboration between WAAPA and WAYJO comes to fruition in a special concert featuring some of the finest young players in WA.

The Head of Jazz at WAAPA, Jamie Oehlers, has been working with 6 fantastic young musicians from WAYJO over the past 6 weeks, developing improvisation skills, learning new repertoire and fine tuning their ensemble playing.

The concert will be performed in 'The Edith' - one of just a handful Spiegeltents in the world - designed by historical custodians of the ornate tents, the Klessens family in Belgium (who have been building Spiegeltents since the 1920’s).
