From the Program Coordinator…
The very popular Sydney Symphony Orchestra School Concerts bring the joy of orchestral music to hundreds of students at Riverside every year. The preparation activities in the teacher’s resource kit allow your students to learn some of the pieces before they see them performed live, making it a really fun concert for them to go to. Great as an introduction to classical music for younger students and a good way to expand knowledge of repertoire and musical concepts for older students, these concerts are pure magic!
