WHAT HAPPENED IN 2019?
2019 was a year of consolidation and growth for WAYACHAMP.
It kicked off with the new format WAYAJAM on 20 July, in which 17 students participated, forming 8 ensembles of different combinations. Sight-reading fun for all!
Then came WAYACHAMP 2019 (30 September - 3 October), which attracted 69 applicants and is the largest WAYACHAMP Program to date. 10 tutors helped out in over 25 sessions and two Final Concerts. Every room at UWA was used! The 4-day Program saw the creation of 34 chamber ensembles, 2 orchestras, 2 new student compositions and 4 special workshops.
2019 saw the first of the WAYACHAMP Compose! Program, in which young artists were invited to submit chamber music compositions which were workshopped and performed by WAYACHAMP tutors and students.
