“I can’t go anywhere and play with a youth jazz orchestra as good as WAYJO.”
-James Morrison, award-winning trumpeter and 2008 guest artist.
The Western Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra – WAYJO – is one of Australia’s cultural gems, the largest youth jazz orchestra of its kind in the country. It provides a unique experience for jazz musicians aged 14 to 25 who are the absolute cream of young jazz players in the state.
Competition for places is fierce. Those who make it are amongst the best young players in WA and are rewarded with career-defining experiences – touring, training, recording and performing with world-class guest artists.
