On Friday 15 September, boys from Years 1 to 4 will be treated to a performance by the highly skilled members of the group, Entourage, as they perform An Australian Backyard Suite by Australian composer Paul Kopetz, who magically evokes the sounds of lorikeets, cicadas and the wind through treetops. Soaring melodies on the clarinet, a rich cello bass line, stunning sung poetry by Australian poet Svyetlana Hadgraft and a range of colours on the piano create a rich tonal palette, providing an amazing opportunity to explore Australian flora and fauna. Already, the boys have been inspired to compose their own music by imagining their own backyard scenes and experimenting with a variety of instruments and musical concepts. We hope that you will be able to join us for this special performance.
