WAAPA has produced a myriad of innovative and world-class jazz composers and arrangers that are now seen and heard on stages all over the globe, and for this special concert they’ve commissioned brand new music from their alumni, sparked by one central question: How would you change the world?

These outstanding jazz scribes will lead us through a unique concert event – interconnected by musical ideas from all WAAPA ensembles – including a combined big band and vocal choir.

The concert features commissions from star WAAPA jazz alumni including Sarah McKenzie (USA), Mat Jodrell (USA/MEL), Alana Macpherson (GER), Troy Roberts (USA), Vanessa Perica (MEL), Grant Windsor (UK/PER), Tom O’Halloran (PER/SYD), and Johannes Luebbers (MEL).
