Year 9 Music symphonic excursion

Author: Fionn Espiner and Sidney Marshall
Author Role: Year 9 Music students

The Year 9 Music class enjoyed a musical treat last week at the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Firebird concert.

After a loud bus ride with the class singing together, we arrived at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre for a 75-minute showcase of some of music’s most prolific composers.

Described as an instrumental spectacular, the performance included Weber’s Der Freischutz overture, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 19 played by Simon Tedeschi, and Stravinsky’s suite from The Firebird.

The orchestra delivered a breathtaking performance that will be hard to forget. The entire audience was captivated by the power of the orchestra and the talent that the performers demonstrated.

It will no doubt continue to provide much inspiration in our music classroom for some time. Thank you to Mr Schultz and Dr Cole for organising and taking us on this special trip.
