Festival of Learning

Nothing quite sums up the spirit of the ASO’s Learning Program as much as our annual concerts for schools with Paul Rissmann. With a belief that participation in music is at the heart of learning, this immersive week of activity incorporates professional development for teachers and concerts with a focus on inclusivity and participation for students of all ages and abilities.

In 2019 we offer

  • the new concert Earth, Wind and Fire for upper secondary students exploring the making of selected masterworks;
  • Giddy Goat – a tale of bravery, growth and self-belief from author Jamie Rix and illustrated by Lynne Chapman which continues an ASO tradition of setting storybooks to music and incorporating song and movement, for the younger audiences;
  • And, for middle-upper primary, Dreams of Air and Flight based on a beautiful story by Grahame Baker-Smith: sure to set imaginations soaring;
  • Teacher PD sessions for Giddy Goat and Dreams of Air & Flight held at the ASO Grainger Studio. Students will then be able to learn the songs before attending the concert, giving them the opportunity to actively participate in the performance.
