Presented by WA Youth Jazz Orchestra
Looking for some more jazz to fill your weekends? Want to be on the ground floor before our young musicians take off and conquer the world?
Then come along to our late night sessions of Jazz @ the Maj. Short, sharp, and full of punch, WAYJO have opened up the stage to our band members to present their own ensembles, be they trios, quartets or something a little larger, to keep your night going a little longer.
For only $10*, you’ll be treated to sets curated entirely by WAYJO band members. All profits from the performances will go straight to the band members as well, so you’ll be supporting young musicians as they hone their craft.
We’ll be listing the acts performing closer to the performance dates, so keep an eye out on our webpage and Facebook for the announcements as they come to hand.
