Little people make music

Share Canberra's trusted news:

MORE than 9000 school students from around the region have taken part in the Canberra Symphony Orchestra’s Noteworthy music education program today.

Noteworthy is the only free music program of its kind – offering  students interactive concerts, workshops and teach resources for staff and students.

This year, leading Australian music education conductor Warwick Potter will direct the education program and says Noteworthy offers a real, tangible and practical experience to compliment classroom-based learning.

“It’s engaging and interesting, and it make classical music very fun and enjoyable – as I believe it should be,” Mr Potter said.

“It’s also a very inclusive program. We have activities catering for children from three to 18 years of age, there’s also an outreach program for people with physical and intellectual disabilities – and incredibly, it’s all provided completely free of charge thanks to The Macquarie Group Foundation,” he said.

Canberra Symphony Orchestra chief executive Henry Laska said Noteworthy was a real highlight for the CSO because it was at the core of their business – supporting and reaching out to the Canberra community, teaching people about the joy of music and bringing classical music to new audiences.

The Noteworthy program finishes on Friday,  July 29. For more information, visit
