A symphony of kids and kookaburras Children and orchestras don't usually go hand-in-hand, but Strath eld's Symphony Orchestra is set to break the mould this month. Award-winning Australian pianist Bernard Walz will make his conducting debut as special guest conductor for the concert on June 27 and guarantees a great show for young and old. e concert will feature the wonderful works of Australian composers Sean O'Boyle and Peter Winkler, with Rossini's William Tell Overture and Mozart's dad thrown in for good measure. " e rst piece is delightfully wacky," Walz says. "It's a hoe-down, country-sounding piece during which every member of the orchestra will play the kazoo. It's really fun." For the second piece, the children will participate, playing "toy" instruments, such as bird whistles and a toy trumpet. e piece de resistance will no doubt be e Kookaburra Who Stole the Moon, wri en by Peter Winkler speci cally to introduce children to classical music. It's a magical piece that uses a narrator and a didgeridoo player to tell a story through music. "In this piece, a kookaburra steals the moon from the sky and the other animals try and get it back," Walz says. "It explains why the birds always laugh just before sunset. There are emus and wombats and all. It's the Australian Peter and the Wolf," he adds. Walz has recorded with Australian maestro Tommy Tycho. His next concert will be conducting the Pueblo Symphony Orchestra in Colorado, US, in February 2011. At Strath eld Town Hall on Sunday June 27, 11am and 3pm. Adults $25, Conc. $20, Students $15, Family $60. Tickets available via www.mca-tix.com. For more information, visit www.strath eldsymphony.com.au.
