WAAPA Young Artists Ensemble

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).

Come along to this free event and see how bright the future of jazz in Perth is!
