Sydney Symphony Orchestra presents

Sydney Symphony Orchestra Concerts 2019

5 - 7 Nov 2019

The world-class Sydney Symphony Orchestra will once again be offering school concerts at the Seymour Centre as part of their Learning & Engagement Program.

 

THE COMPOSER IS DEAD

Conductor: Brett Kelly

Narrator: Brendon Taylor

This tongue-in-cheek approach to the orchestra entices students into the world of orchestral music, and even to side with the different families of instruments within it! Inspector Brendon Taylor is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery in composer Nathaniel Stookey’s macabre introduction to the orchestra, with text by Lemony Snicket. Just who killed the composer? Was it the shifty string players, the sneaky clarinets, or the flutes – supposedly busy pretending to be birds? All likely stories. The Composer is Dead is a terrifically entertaining introduction to the orchestra and to the great composers who have composed for it over the centuries. Students will hear from Tchaikovsky to Beethoven and Mozart to Mendelssohn as they ponder just who is to blame in The Composer is Dead.
