A very ‘jazzy’ Christmas  presented by The Western Australian Jazz Project (WAJP).

The Western Australian Jazz Project will debut at Perth Concert Hall this December.

Bringing a sense of excitement and wonder to the city during the festive season, WAJP’s Christmas Concert will be unlike anything Perth has ever seen before.

The band, which is made up of 17 internationally acclaimed musicians, will perform a stunning rendition of Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite, as well as some of the world’s most beloved Christmas songs.

Audience members can also expect to be dazzled by the breathtaking performances from musical theatre legends John James O'Hara and special guest, who will be in town for WAJP’s first live performance.

It will be a night to remember, so book your tickets today!
