équipe noun (french) meaning ‘team’

WAYO’s équip-athon is coming to a stage near you! Join the team and help fund the purchase of much-needed equipment for WAYO to do its best for its members and the WA community. With sweeping tailcoats and glittering lights, the public perception of a classical orchestra is one of polished concert halls and emotive sounds, but so rarely do we discuss the hidden costs that go towards this wonderful creative pursuit. From music stands and specialist instrumental equipment to library hire and ergonomic chairs, these things are essential to running an orchestra for young people in a safe and optimal environment. Help WAYO to survive and thrive in the era of COVID-19 – make a tangible difference by donating the cost of vital equipment, and see your contribution manifest.

WAYO is committed to giving as many Western Australians as possible the lifelong benefit of music and we invite you to join us on this journey with a tax-deductible donation. With less than 17% of our funding coming from government sources, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to help us to sustain and evolve as an organisation, and contribute to the colourful arts landscape of Western Australia.
