Who Needs a Conductor Anyway?
An SSO Family Concert

Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi teams up with the SSO for a rollercoaster ride through the great piano concertos. Now, where did we put the conductor?

What happens if there’s no conductor? Isn’t a solo pianist enough? Why can’t everyone just play how they like? (And seriously, how hard can conducting be, anyway?) Celebrated Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi actually has no idea, but with the musicians of the SSO and some of the most famous concertos in the repertoire, he’ll put these and other questions to the test.

A captivating concert for curious minds and ears.

Written by Simon Tedeschi, Eva di Cesare and Tim McGarry
with special thanks to Monkey Baa Theatre Company.

Suitable for ages 5+ and their families.
