Description

The Bush Concert. “There has been a terrible drought and the birds put on a gala concert to cheer themselves up. There is singing and dancing but the final act is the perfect end to a wonderful bush concert.” NEWLY commissioned by ASO in 2015! Join eight ASO Musicians and presenter Susan Ferguson on this colourful adventure and delight in the heart-warming rhyme of Helga Visser’s beautiful Australian tale. With central themes of community, sustainability and the importance of The Arts in everyday life, this highly participatory touring performance is the perfect complement to your school Performing Arts and Literacy programs. Students will learn about the unique sounds of the instruments as the orchestra performs Mark Simeon Ferguson’s enchanting musical score, entwined with highlights of some of the world’s most famous orchestral melodies. There will be plenty of opportunities for audience participation through song and dance as The Bush Concert comes to life with action, colour and projected imagery. Immerse your classes in an extensive unit of creative work prior to the performance day, focusing on music and covering aspects of all 5 of the Arts Subject Areas. Students will have the opportunity to explore and imagine the scenes of the story through the creation of their own artwork, dance, media and musical compositions. Additionally, middle primary students can also get involved through a creative project plus workshop that will enable them to feature in the performance on the day.
