Sydney Opera House, The Bush Concert - An SSO Family Concert, 2pm - 3pm, $39
Based on the Australian picture book by Helga Visser your kids will experience the sounds of the Australian bush come alive with your SSO.
The Bush Concert will bring the sounds of the Australian bush alive in a heartwarming concert for children.
Adelaide composer Mark Simeon Ferguson has set Helga Visser's picture book classic to music, with the orchestra providing the sounds of all the bush birds. In this concert Barry Conrad (The X Factor) will tell 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 will love picking the "galahs" and "noisy miners" from amongst the different instruments on the Sydney Opera House stage.
