Family-friendly musical safari.

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.
