Festival of Learning

In 2018, our annual Festival of Learning returns to the Adelaide Town Hall for a week-long celebration of music-making. Award-winning British presenter, composer and educator Paul Rissmann is back to share his love of music with students ranging from kindergarten to tertiary level.

The World Premiere of ASO’s brand new commission, What do you do with an idea? is the centrepiece of the Festival. Composed by Paul Rissmann, this immersive work brings together orchestral music with theatre, dance and young voices, to celebrate the power of imagination, creativity, and the evolution of ideas.

For the first time this year, each activity in the Festival of Learning is accompanied by a professional development workshop for teachers, led by Paul Rissmann.
