Nationwide multimedia performance of a fantastic and famous symphonic classic plus other great repertoire to give young secondary school students an introduction to incredibly moving composed live music in a highly accessible concert. Art and music linked together to tap in on audience imaginations to encourage an engagement with a form of art they may not normally consider…with slide imagery depicting American history from this era and a screened shadow puppet accompaniment, created by Púca Puppets.
