OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM WAYO:
Due to reasons beyond our control, including a loss of key artistic personnel, WAYO has made the difficult decision to cancel the July performances of Jandamarra.
This production is poignant and artistically challenging and WAYO was not prepared to compromise the quality of the performance. We hope to be able to present Jandamarra in 2020.
While this is a disappointing outcome for the entire WAYO team, we will be performing a replacement symphonic program with international conductor Benjamin Northey at the Perth Concert Hall at 7.30pm on Saturday 13 July 2019.
We sincerely thank you for your continued support of the WA Youth Orchestras.
Jandamarra, Sing for the Country: Ngalanybarra Muwayi.u
Join the Western Australian Youth Orchestra in an all Australian program of exciting works. Featuring masterpieces by Sculthorpe, a world premiere by Australian composer Melody Eotvos, and the legendary epic tale of Jandamarra Sing for the Country: Ngalanybarra Muwayi.u
Set in the dramatic landscape of the central Kimberley, Jandamarra tells the story of an indigenous Western Australian warrior and leader of the Bunuba resistance of the 1800’s. In a strongly collaborative environment, WAYO will join forces with multiple youth choirs, soloists, and an Indigenous ensemble of musicians and actors from the Bunuba People to bring this dramatic cantata to life. Unique, impactful, and historically vital – become part of the story today.
