Building on the success of last year’s Mini TSO for Kids, the TSO gave five sold-out performances of Mini Maestro in the TSO Studio during the recent school holidays. Conducted by Greg Stephens (TSO Horn player) and hosted by Jane Longhurst, ABC Local Radio announcer and actor, Mini Maestro was aimed at children aged 2 to 8 who played, conducted, sang and danced. The accompanying mums, dads and grandparents seemed to have a good time too!
Music from Star Wars went down a treat as did Grieg’s In the Hall of the Mountain King. Children came to know the distinctive sounds of the instruments of the orchestra through Jane Longhurst’s original and witty story, “Where is the Big Sound?”
