In an exciting collaboration, WAAPA and WAYJO come together to present a showcase of the rising stars of the jazz world in the WAAPA Jazz Young Artists Ensemble.
WAAPA guitar lecturer, Freddie Grigson, leads the incredibly talented jazz guitar students through a diverse range of music featuring the king of the string instruments (according to them!).
This high-energy ensemble will pay tribute to this legend, playing an assortment of Mingus’ most famous works tinged with soul, hard bop, gospel, free jazz and classical music.
The WAAPA / ECU Open Day is a perfect opportunity to explore behind the scenes. Come and see WAAPA in action!
Get down and boogie with all the classic soul, neo-soul, funk and R&B favourites.
The WAAPA Afro-Peruvian ensemble showcases high-level WAAPA music students from all year groups collaborating to perform original music combining Afro-Peruvian and jazz musical elements.
The WAAPA Postgraduate Research Showcase offers a rare opportunity for audiences to be dazzled and intrigued by arts projects in their nascent stages, to view the ideas that will transform the future of arts practice.
Our jazz Vocal Ensemble will have you grooving in your seats to soul classics with lush vocal harmonies in abundance.
