Susan Ferguson - Presenter
A tale about community, adversity and inclusion – The Bush Concert is the story of the Australian bush and its harsh conditions. The bird community is in distress as they struggle to find water and food during drought, and come together to hold a big concert to lift everyone’s spirits– The Bush Concert!
Based on Helga Visser’s beautiful Australian book of the same name, this participatory experience engages students through song, dance, and the beautiful images from the book. Mark Simeon Ferguson’s score is a wonderful introduction to the sounds of our Australian birds, and an enchanting introduction to the instruments of the orchestra.
This ASO production toured to China in August 2018 and makes its return to Australian schools in 2019.
