The Bush Concert

Susan Ferguson - Presenter

“There has been a terrible drought and the birds put on a gala concert to cheer themselves up. There is singing and dancing but the final act is the perfect end to a wonderful bush concert.”


Following sell-out seasons in 2015 and 2016, The Bush Concert returns in 2017 for a special appearance as part of Festival Fleurieu. With central themes of community, sustainability and the importance of The Arts in everyday life, this highly participatory performance is the perfect school holiday activity for audiences of all ages.


There will be plenty of opportunities for audience participation as The Bush Concert is brought to life with action, colour, music, song and dance. Learn about the unique sounds of the instruments as the musicians perform Mark Simeon Ferguson’s enchanting score.


Age suitability 3-9 yrs
