The conductor stands on the podium and raises the baton, then suddenly whish! – with a gesture the music begins! The flutes flutter sweetly, the violins trill and the trumpets blast bright and loud notes ‘buuh buuuh-bu-BUP!’
Meet the Orchestra concerts are a wonderful way to introduce orchestral music to families and young children.
Performed by the SYO’s Western Sydney Youth Orchestra and Peter Seymour Orchestra, this relaxed and informal concert has been specially designed to be interactive, informative and most importantly, lots of fun! The SYO conductor, James Pensini and SYO musicians will help guide children through the different wind instruments and their individual sounds.
Children are encouraged to join in. Stomp your feet to the timpani drum beat, clap your hands to the big, brass tubas, dance gently to the delicate flutes and wiggle along to the clarinet!
