A big Australian adventure for little ears

Treat little ears to musical soundscapes and classical compositions with Sounds Like Australia. In this immersive introduction to music, we follow the story of Kirra Quokka as she sets off on a big musical adventure, traveling from sleepy Rottnest Island to the bright lights of the Sydney Opera House. As Kirra makes the journey across the country, she is helped by her furry and feathered friends.

Join Play School's Luke Carroll and Ensemble Offspring in this light-hearted, participatory show. Kids will learn about instrument sounds, develop their musical vocabulary, and explore the importance of listening. After the show, kids can meet the musicians and instruments. It's the perfect adventure to start your mini musicians on a lifetime of classical music.

Listen to the Sounds like Australia podcast series on the ABC KIDS listen app.  

Presented by Sydney Opera House, ABC KIDS listen and ABC Classic FM in collaboration with Ensemble Offspring and composer Jessica Wells
