Presented by WA Youth Jazz Orchestra

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 premiere exciting commissions by WAYJO's alumni composer Alana Macpherson on her recent return from Austria.

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 Guest Artist Partner, The Minderoo Foundation

"Alana is not only an excellent saxophone player, but finding her own unique voice as a composer, arranger and band-leader. She's a fan of Bob Brookmeyer's music and you can hear a clear continuation of his concepts in her writing." - Ed Partyka 2019
