Encounter the Orchestra by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra

“Encounter the Orchestra” Educational Performances provide primary students (Grades 3–6) with a live encounter with Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, one of Australia’s leading orchestras. The structured, narrated events include performances, interaction, explanations, demonstrations, and an opportunity for students to sing accompanied by the orchestra.

Through the exciting cultural opportunity of interacting with a live orchestra, students will have the opportunity to appreciate music and create it and form more complex ideas about music across cultures, places and times. These objectives form a strong nexus with strands in the Victorian curriculum.

Devised in conjunction with leading music educator Ingrid Martin, the 45-minute narrated performances are designed with detailed resources for teachers to orient students to the experience and create strong curriculum-based outcomes. The multimedia resources will be designed to enable delivery by non-specialist teachers. The performances and materials are devised to meet curriculum objectives for students in upper primary years.

These performances could form part of planning to offer a broader range of cultural opportunities and experiences to young people as they form a view of the world.
