For families of all ages
Adelaide composer Mark Simeon Ferguson has set Helga Visser’s picture book classic The Bush Concert to music.
Melbourne Youth Orchestra makes the sounds of all the bush birds, while Susan Ferguson tells the endearing story of how, during a terrible drought, the birds put on a gala concert to cheer themselves up with singing, dancing and magic tricks.
Kids love picking the ‘galahs’ and ‘noisy miners’ from the different instruments on stage.
Music Play is supported by the Betty Amsden Kids & Families program.
