In its final instalment, the students of WAAPA return for a night of music under the stars with WAAPA in the Park!

As the renowned performing arts academy celebrates its 40th year anniversary, join WAAPA’s Jazz and Contemporary students for the last annual WAAPA in the Park. An exhibition of talent and passion, it’s a great opportunity to gather your family and friends together and bring a picnic to Ron Stone Park in Mount Lawley on Saturday 14 March for a free evening of popular songs and cool classics.

Presented by the City of Stirling, Edith Cowan University and WAAPA since 2007, this will be the last WAAPA in Park before it transforms into a fresh new event next year.

Be wowed by the incredible musical talent that’s on your doorstep at Australia’s premier performing arts academy, as WAAPA’s Jazz and Contemporary student musicians rock, bop and strut their way through a collection of old and new jazz, funk, soul, R ‘n’ B and pop classics.

The students will light up the night with a stellar set of music by some of the world’s biggest artists including the Eagles, George Michael, Ariana Grande, John Mayer and Sara Bareilles.

Behind the scenes, the Production and Arts Management students will be looking after the technical details needed to bring this special event to life, including the lighting, stage management, sound and front of house.

City of Stirling Mayor, Mark Irwin said this annual outdoor performance has been a much-loved event on the City’s calendar.

“We are very proud to partner with WAAPA to deliver an event that brings the community together for such a magical evening, and look forward to more exciting collaborations in years to come,” Mayor Irwin said.

So pack your picnic rug and hamper, and enjoy a fabulous and fun evening of music under the stars. Arrive early to secure your spot – show starts at 7pm and finishes at 9pm.
