What is it?

Established in 2019, WAYACOMP encourages ensembles to continue playing together on a regular basis, and provides an incentive particularly for those ensembles formed during WAYACHAMP Programs. It is also an opportunity for ensembles to refine one of their pieces, aiming for the highest quality performance possible. In a relaxed and supportive environment, ensembles are assessed by an adjudicator in the categories of technical, musicality, ensemble and general performance presentation. Three prizes are available, as detailed below.

Open to:

  • Students aged 10 - 17

  • Ensembles of 3 - 6 people, 1 player to a part

  • Any instrumentation

  • Performance of a maximum of 12 minutes duration. This can include multiple movements within this time frame if desired. 3 minutes is the recommended minimum duration, but not compulsory

  • Enter in as many ensembles as you like!

Date and Time:

Saturday 11 December




Callaway Auditorium, Conservatorium of Music, UWA
