March of the Fire Ants; songs from your backyard

Musica Viva In Schools

March

"...a wonderful teaching and learning opportunity in addition to a concert experience!"
Trudi Cosgrove - Matthew Pearce Public School

A fantastic musical world is brought to life by Australian composer Paul Kopetz.

Students will discover music that showcases the inhabitants of the fire tree, including jet fighter lorikeets, swarming fire ants and machine-like cicadas.

Performed by ensemble Entourage, featuring voice, cello, clarinet and keyboard, this performance paints a vivid and immersive picture of an Aussie backyard. Don’t miss the opportunity for students to join in with musicians to make a musical storybook from the sights and sounds of their own worlds!
