Festival of Learning & Participation

Festival of Learning and Participation June 2 – June 10 2017

Internationally acclaimed composer and educator Paul Rissmann returns once again to the ASO to lead our third annual Festival of Learning and Participation. This dynamic weeklong festival will see over four thousand students from kindergarten to tertiary level, share and make music with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. For the first time, the glorious Adelaide Town Hall will be home to the week-long program of schools and families concerts, featuring two Australian premieres by Paul Rissmann, and three exceptional programs for different age groups, including a stimulating program designed specifically to connect the orchestra with high school students.

In addition to a day of family creative workshops, we are also thrilled to be collaborating with the Elder Conservatorium of Music to present a feature concert at Elder Hall. This project will see the ASO perform side by side with Conservatorium students, featuring a performance of a brand new work, devised by 20 students throughout a week of creative workshops with Paul Rissmann.
