Fiddlesticks visited 16 schools and performed to over 4,000 students. With the ensemble’s trademark versatility and adaptability, it was a fantastic experience for the group and the schools involved. It’s important work for Musica Viva to undertake, building relationships with our neighbours in South East Asia and providing quality arts experiences with a distinct Australian flavour to young people from different cultures.
With guitar, violin and cello, the Fiddlesticks ensemble gives students intimate and dynamic live experiences showcasing the versatility of the string family of instruments. Musica Viva has a diverse range of professional musicians who tour to schools all over Australia, inspiring teachers and students through live music performance. The organisation also offers professional development courses and curriculum-linked resources that equip teachers with all the tools they need to feel like a maestro. Like AMPAG, Musica Viva believes all children deserve a quality music education, no matter where they live or what school they attend.
The magic of chamber music will be brought to life in schools across Western Australia when the Fiddlesticks ensemble takes on a four week regional tour. On the tour, commencing 22 October, the ensemble will perform repertoire spanning tango, fandango, contemporary and familiar classics in a way that engages students from start to finish.
