Event Details

Join the MSO’s Patricia Riordan Associate Conductor Chair, Benjamin Northey, as he presents four interactive concerts for primary school students exploring the works of great Australian composers and how these works relate to places, life and culture in Australia. Throughout the performance, students will discover the key building blocks of music including rhythm, melody, harmony, dynamics and form. The orchestra and Northey will be joined by special guests Jessica Aszodi (soprano), Shane Charles (didgeridoo) and Eric Avery/Marrawuy Kabi, who has written this year’s audience participation piece titled Yananha. The audience will perform Yananha with Eric, Shane and the MSO at the concerts.
