We do not have a specific dress code for this event and thus do not require participants to wear concert blacks or school uniform, however we do encourage participants to consider that they will be performing with others and use a common sense approach with their attire and presentation for the occasion (i.e avoiding poor hygiene or bare feet)
There is FREE parking available at UWA on a Sunday HOWEVER, please note that we cannot guarantee that ample spots will be available for the duration of the event - especially given the high number of registrations. There is additional parking along Hackett Drive and Matilda Bay, but please note that fees will apply, unless stated otherwise.
Due to the weather forecast for this event, we strongly recommend that participants only take their instruments out of their cases in an indoor setting. During the morning tea and lunch breaks, participants will need to leave their instruments indoors.
We look forward to seeing you Sunday!

In conjunction with the UWA Conservatorium of Music, CASSWA will once again be hosting an ATAR workshop this year.
ATAR students in year 11 and 12 are invited to come and play a piece of their exam material in front of a panel of professional players to get some feedback. An accompanist will be provided, however students must remember to bring a copy of their own music, as well as a part for the accompanist.
