Introduce your kids to the wonder of music with 'Who Needs A Conductor Anyway' - a fun family concert by Sydney Symphony Orchestra this March!

Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi teams up with the SSO for a rollercoaster ride through the great piano concertos. Now, where did we put the conductor? What happens if there’s no conductor? Isn’t a solo pianist enough? Why can’t everyone just play how they like? (And seriously, how hard can conducting be, anyway?)

It’s a fabulous day out – easy to get to by car or public transport, with plenty of eating options and ice-cream shops to be found along Circular Quay. But best of all it’s fun! Relax, Mum! If kids want to cheer, laugh or wave to the musicians– that’s fine! The only greasy look you’ll get is if you say no to a second ice cream after the concert.

Aimed at kids aged from 5 to 12 years of age, each concert tells an exciting story and introduces the amazing sounds of the orchestra, with a conductor, musicians and special soloists including pianist Simon Tedeschi.

Kids Musical Activity Zones
Arrive in the hour before the 2pm concert and your kids can explore the foyer of the concert hall to learn about the instruments from the musicians in the Kids Activity Zone. They might try their hand at composing, beat percussion instruments, discover some unusual instruments or join the mobile orchestra? And they can return to these activities after the concert as well.
