Things might be tapering off at the end of the year for some, but the Perth Symphony Education program has never been busier! Perth Symphony musicians are visiting no fewer than seven schools in the Kwinana area this month, with incursions at Leda, Orelia, North Parmelia, Bertram, and Honeywood Primary Schools. Our ‘PLAY WITH US’ incursions are interactive, collaborative, fun and LOUD! And feature traditional brass and percussion ensembles as well as some unusual combinations of instruments, keeping things fresh and exciting!
Musicians will also be working with Peter Carnley Anglican Community School students in a “Share the Chair” program with the school’s concert band.
In addition to the ‘PLAY WITH US’ and ‘Share the Chair’ programs, Perth Symphony oboist Kate Page is working with head of music at Gilmore College to create an ensemble to accommodate the various instruments played by students in years 7-9 at the school, in a project spanning the entire month.
Igniting and fostering a love of music in young people is such a crucial part of what Perth Symphony does, which is why it’s fantastic that over 2,400 students will have access to the orchestra’s education programs this month.
