Tickets for this event are no longer available.

A tale about community, adversity and inclusion – The Bush Concert is the story of the Australian bush and its harsh conditions. The bird community is in distress as they struggle to find water and food during drought, and come together to hold a big concert to lift everyone’s spirits – The Bush Concert!

Based on Australian author Helga Visser’s beautiful book of the same name, this special concert experience engages the audience through song, dance, and the beautiful images from the book. Mark Simeon Ferguson’s score is a wonderful introduction to the sounds of our Australian birds, and an enchanting introduction to the instruments of the orchestra.

To celebrate Chinese New Year all performances will be bilingual. The 11am and 1.30pm performances will be in English with Mandarin surtitles, and the 3pm performance will be performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.

In response to the devastating bushfires across Australia, an additional 1.30pm performance of The Bush Concert has been announced, with all proceeds from ticket sales donated to SAVEM – South Australian Veterinary Emergency Management.
