What do you do with an idea?

Paul Rissmann - Composer & Presenter
Graham Abbott - Conductor
Young Adelaide Voices

This family concert is part of our 2018 Festival of Learning


A brand new ASO commission by Paul Rissmann based on the glorious picture book What do you do with an idea? by Kobi Yamada and illustrated by Mae Besom.


It’s the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. As the child’s confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens.


This magical World Premiere, combining an orchestra with theatrical elements, explores the importance of creativity and imagination and how young people have the power to change the world.


Project supported by Roger & Helen Salkeld
