The Bush Concert
An SSO Family Concert

The Bush Concert will bring the sounds of the Australian bush alive in a heartwarming concert for children.

Adelaide composer Mark Simeon Ferguson has set Helga Visser's picture book classic to music, with the orchestra providing the sounds of all the bush birds. In this concert Barry Conrad (The X Factor) will tell the endearing story of how, during a terrible drought, the birds put on a gala concert to cheer themselves up with singing, dancing and magic tricks. Kids will love picking the "galahs" and "noisy miners" from amongst the different instruments on the Sydney Opera House stage.

Suitable for ages 5+ and their families.
Arrive early or stay afterwards for our Kids Activity Zone
