WHAT HAPPENED IN 2020?

2020 was a challenging year for all. While many events early in the year had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, we were very fortunate to be situated in the best place in the world, which meant we could go ahead with events in the second half of the year with only relatively minor adjustments.

While we were in lock down, WAYACHAMP organised several musical collaborations using the music recording app, Acapella. Here is an example of one of the pieces we played.

Spring WAYACHAMP

 

Spring WAYACHAMP 2020 (28 September - 1 October), was a fantastic success with 84 participants and 10 tutors. Students were organised into 2 different streams with independent schedules. Overall, there were 49 sessions, 44 pieces of music played, 42 group performances and special workshops which included the premiere of 2 new students compositions, masterclasses with Suzanne Wijsman and an introduction to improvisation by Rupert Guenther. Also new this year was the addition of the Viola Scholarship (thanks to Tempest Music), which joined the other scholarship offerings, specifically the AUSTA Pre-formed group Scholarship and Regional Student scholarships. The program culminated in two Final Concerts. Check out some of the photos below!

TERM PROGRAM

 

2020 saw the establishment of the Term Program, which offers weekly chamber music lessons to set groups with a tutor. After a brief hiatus during the lockdown period in Term 2, we were thrilled to see the Program re-invigorated after the success of Spring WAYACHAMP.
