Musica Viva

The wind quintent, "The Chambermaids", visited as part of the Musica Viva music in schools program this week.

Students learnt how the french horn, flute, clarinet, oboe and bassoon work; how music can tell stories and even how to make their own back yard french horn with the help of a bit of garden hose, a tap fitting and funnel!

The classically trained professional musicians all work regularly with Australia's various symphony orchestras, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra and other chamber ensembles but come together as "The Chambermaids" to foster a love and appreciation of live music in schools throughout Australia.
