Kinderling News & Features

What would happen if musicians were left to their own devices with no conductor in sight? That's the theme of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra's latest Family Concert - Who Needs a Conductor Anyway? - happening at the Sydney Opera House this Sunday March 11 at 2pm.

Celebrated Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi steps up to the plate and attempts to lead the orchestra, bringing the audience along on the ride. He plays through the great piano concertos, and attempts to explore why a conductor is necessary. What happens if there’s no conductor? Isn’t a solo pianist enough? Why can’t everyone just play how they like? (And seriously, how hard can conducting be, anyway?)

Perfect for ages five and up, kids will love the musical rollercoaster ride and the hilarity that ensues. A captivating concert for curious minds and ears, Who Needs a Conductor Anyway is a lovely introduction to the orchestra for littlies.

Plus, before and after the show tots can explore the Kids Activity Zone, where they can interact with music installations and musicians to further discover the wonderful world of music.

Tickets are $39 plus booking fee. Book now at the Sydney Symphony Orchestra's website.
