Carnival Of The (Australian) Animals: SSO Family Concert

  • Sun Sep 24 2017
  • Kids
  • From: $39.00

Sydney Symphony Orchestra brings you ‘Carnival of the Animals’ – another great show in the Family Concert Series this September.

Australia is notorious for its fearsome fauna – any visitor can tell you about our biting, stinging animals! So an Australian like Matthew Hindson is probably best qualified to compose a modern “Carnival of the Animals” that’s all about the nasty ones.

Big and hairy, small and scary, and finishing with the most dangerous creatures of all – humans! Then TV personality Richard Morecroft narrates the music that started it all – Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals – with new words by Bradley Trevor Greive (The Blue Day Book). From the long-eared bilby to the koala and the blobfish, Greive finds Aussie animals to match Saint-Saëns’ original musical caricatures.

Participate in activity stations set-up in the Concert Hall foyers before and following the concert. Have fun composing your own music on the Composing Wall, learn about instruments like the Shakuhachi at the Exotic Instrument Stand or learn about percussion music at the Percussion Club.

Where:   Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, Sydney
When:     Sunday 24 September; 2pm
Cost:        Tickets from $39
