Welcome back to another new school year. I sincerely hope that 2019 proves to be a year where you experience the many joys that music can bring. The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra is looking forward to playing our part in that for you and your students this year.
There are a couple of events in Term 1 that I want to highlight. The first is a wonderful Teacher PD; a Teacher Symposium on Saturday 16 March, which we are presenting in conjunction with Musica Viva and ASME. Its focus is “Creative, Active Music Education” with presenters Associate Professor Katie Dawson and Professor Gary McPherson. Book through Musica Viva here and contact Emily Kelly on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries. It is shaping up to be a fascinating day full of lots of great ideas you can implement in your classrooms.
Those of you teaching secondary students who haven’t brought them to a Mozart at Elder concert, consider that as an excursion opportunity for this year. The first concert is on April 3 (Term 1, Week 10) and is a good way for your students to see the orchestra perform some of the core classical repertoire during the school day.
We had a huge response to our incursion The Bush Concert and we are looking forward to coming out to the schools in the last week of Term 1 for those performances.
I wish you all a wonderful beginning to the term and look forward to seeing many of you throughout the year either at Learning concerts with your students or at other performances by the ASO.
