Music is Magic

Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 11 January 2009

Last year’s competition was all about singing the “Mashed Banana”. This year; who knows?! To celebrate the nurturing of our budding songwriters, Sydney Festival again brings together some of our finest young singers and musicians.

Led by the much-loved Maestro George Ellis, Sydney Youth Orchestra, Australian Youth Choir and a line-up of surprise guest performers present some of the highlight entries in the 2008 Australian Children’s Music Foundation National Songwriting Competition.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be in the audience for this inspiring concert from upcoming musicians, singers and songwriters.
