Presented by WA Youth Jazz Orchestra 

2022 is the 100th birthday celebration of bassist and composer Charles Mingus.

Several band members from the seminal Count Basie Orchestra lineup of the late 1950s also turn 100 this year. Eddie ‘Lockjaw’ Davis, Joe Newman, Frank Wess and Ernie Wilkins were all born in 1922, and contributed iconic arrangements and solos on some of the orchestra's most famous recordings.

WAYJO is also offering a special 1-hour Schools Workshop Concert, Friday 14 October at 1.00pm!

WAYJO’s school concerts and workshops are purpose built for school students to experience big band jazz in a relaxed environment, with experiences designed to bring concepts from the classroom to life.

Students and teachers will be given behind the scenes insights into jazz composition and performance, with ample opportunity to ask questions of our professional Music Directors and orchestra members.
