Who Needs a Conductor Anyway?

Tickets for this event are no longer available.

What happens if there’s no conductor? Isn’t a solo pianist enough? Why can’t everyone just play how they like? (And seriously, how hard can conducting be, anyway?) Celebrated Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi actually has no idea, but with the musicians of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and some of the most famous piano concertos of all time, he’ll put these and other questions to the test in a captivating concert for curious minds and ears.

Suitable: Ages 8+



Presented by Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Adelaide Festival Centre’s DreamBIG Children’s Festival
