Year 7 Ariana Carot Collins Makes Debut in WA Youth Percussion Group
Congratulations to Year 7 student Ariana Carot Collins who recently made her debut in the West Australian Youth Percussion Group (WAYPG).
Ariana, who is in the CVC Specialist Music Program is one of 11 students in the WAYPG.
The WAYPG is an exciting new program run through the UWA Junior Music School and directed by Perth percussionists Jackson Vickery and Adam Tan. WAYPG aims to provide enthusiastic and talented young percussionists an opportunity to perform in a high-quality ensemble outside of their school environment, bridging the gap between secondary and tertiary education.
The WAYPG rehearse a wide variety of repertoire, including works for marimba ensemble, world percussion and multi percussion. In early June the group had their official debut performance at the Percussion All-Stars concert. This biannual performance showcases students of all levels from around Perth in a professional concert environment.
