EARLY LEARNING


     RED RiDiNG HOOD
     A unique version of the folk tale “Little Red Riding Hood”, this
     entertaining production was created by TSO violinist Alison
     Lazaroff-Somssich. Red Riding Hood can be performed in
     smaller venues and introduces children to an instrument from
     each section of the orchestra.

     Mini TSO
     Sometimes the best place to experience the TSO is on the floor
     of the TSO Studio. Or on mum or dad’s lap! Toddlers and young
     children respond innately to music and at Mini TSO concerts
     they get to sing, clap, dance, sway and maybe even conduct the
     orchestra. Sitting close to the musicians, children experience
     music in a totally uninhibited and creative setting. Mini TSO is
     the perfect introduction to music for the very young person in
     your life.

SCHOOL CONCERTS

the little

Julian Yu’s The Little Gecko and Gordon Hamilton’s The Ugly Sound are specially-
written works for children in which music and narrative tell heart-warming stories.
In each story, young entities – a gecko, a musical sound – go on a quest and
come home having learnt something about the world. Stories with life lessons, they
encourage young children to understand difference and to appreciate the qualities
that make each of us unique.

These School concerts will take place in The Hedberg, adjacent to the Theatre
Royal. A smaller venue than Federation Concert Hall, The Hedberg will allow for an
intimate, up-close experience for students and teachers.

What do you do when it’s ‘Bring Your Pet to Work Day’ and your pet happens to be a dragon? It’s not
as if you can bring it to work on a leash or in a pet carrycase. Or can you…?
This concert mixes a zany story by Jenny Compton with orchestral favourites, including movements
from Grieg’s Peer Gynt. A terrific introduction to the orchestra, My Pet Dragon guarantees a
memorable orchestral experience for primary school students and their teachers.

Juanita the Spanish Lobster
When you’re a lobster you’re pretty much free to roam, right? Wrong!
Juanita the Spanish lobster – who is bored in her deep-sea grotto –
dreams of a bigger, wider world. But she soon discovers that if you’re a
crustacean there are places you should try to avoid, one of them being
a lobster pot.
                                                                              grades
The story of Juanita the Spanish Lobster comes replete with a Spanish-
inspired soundtrack, including fiery melodies, flamenco rhythms and
                                                                                3-8
the clackety-clack of castanets. John X brings his trademark madcap
humour to the role of narrator.
Also includes orchestral works by Mendelssohn, Stanhope and Chabrier.       Duration 60 minutes
                                                                               All tickets $7
