New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Free Education Concert: An Animated Orchestra

Projects and programmes Wellington

Posted: 05 March 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9hka

We would like to invite you to join the NZSO for our free concert for schools entitled "An Animated Orchestra". In this programme, you will be guided through the sections of the orchestra in a wonderfully imaginative way, that specifically caters for primary and intermediate ages. The power of the orchestra is brought to life in this programme and if you choose, you will have no end of creative material to work with in your classrooms after the concert. It is with good reason our narrator, Chris Lam Sam, keeps coming back. He has a gift and passion for connecting his young audience with the music and the orchestra. If you have not experienced his stage presence before, you are in for a treat.
