Thum Prints
An SSO Family Concert

Thum Prints
An SSO Family Concert

Tom Thum, the man with the orchestra in his mouth, fronts the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in a concert that will leave you amazed.

Beatboxer Tom Thum wowed audiences at TEDxSydney in 2013. (The video from that presentation is approaching 60 million views.) Armed with just a microphone, this magnificently talented dude produced an inexhaustible vocal inventory of glorious and weird noises, not to mention some favourite classical tunes. Now, teaming up with composer Gordon Hamilton, he’s taken it to the next level, smooshing together the sounds of a real-life orchestra with all the surprising possibilities of beatboxing.

Come and discover some wild and astonishing sounds when we perform Thum Prints, a concerto (sorry, contradiction!) for beatboxer and orchestra.

Join us for our free Kids Activity Zone in the Sydney Opera House Northern Foyer for an hour after the performance – where technology, music and play come together!

Suitable for ages 5+ and their families
