Family-friendly musical safari

Benjamin BRITTEN Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra

Thaddeus Huang conductor
Thea Rossen presenter

Join WASO for this family-friendly musical adventure to meet the musicians and instruments of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is a radiant introduction and deep dive into the exciting world of the Orchestra, its sounds and instruments. From the violins to the triangle, tuba to piccolo, this interactive sonic safari will be guided by presenter Thea Rossen. Young listeners will meet each instrument of the orchestra through a clever series of variations, travelling around the orchestra from the highest to the lowest.

Suitable for ages 6-12 years.
2021 WASO Assistant Conductor, Thaddeus Huang supported by Simon Lee Foundation
Our 2021 Season is planned to be delivered in Phase 5 or 6 of the Western Australian Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions. That means we are planning to present our events with no physical distancing required.
We will do everything in our power to present the program listed but, as we all know, we may have to vary the repertoire or artists should Government guidelines or travel restrictions change. If that happens, we will let you know. For more information, read our 2021 Program Changes page
