The City of Stirling and WAAPA invite you to enjoy an evening of exciting musical talent at WAAPA In The Park on Saturday, 19 March at 7.00pm in Mount Lawley’s Ron Stone Park – just opposite the Academy. This is the ninth WAAPA In The Park concert and this year we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Edith Cowan University as WAAPA up the ante with the production of this wonderful annual event.
WAAPA is delighted to be able to once again showcase its talented students and staff to the wider community and appreciates the support of the City of Stirling in making this happen.
The City of Stirling Mayor, Giovanni Italiano JP, said he welcomes WAAPA to Ron Stone Park for their annual outdoor performance. “This is the ninth year the City and WAPA have joined forces to bring ‘WAAPA in the Park’ to the community. We are very proud to be associated with this event and it has developed quite a following over the years. My advice to those intending to head along this year is to get there early and bring the family.”
The 18-piece WAAPA Big Band will bop their way through a winning selection of jazz hits by Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and many more. Come and see Australia’s finest young jazz artists pay tribute to this incredibly rich musical genre and walk away with a swing in your step.
WAAPA In The Park will also feature a stunning live performance by WAAPA’s Contemporary music students who will celebrate the songs of musical luminaries Adele, Etta James, Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson and heaps more.
WAAPA Production and Arts Management students will also undertake the stage management, lighting, sound and front-of-house management – making this an all-round WAAPA affair! So bring your picnic rug, hamper, family and friends and join us for a fabulous free evening of wonderful music from the stars of tomorrow.
