In 2014, 25 students from throughout NSW worked with animateur Paul Rissmann and the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) to reinterpret Stravisnky’s Petrushka, culminating in a hybrid performance with the LSO featuring music entirely of their own creation.
The Arts Unit has joined forces with Paul again in 2016 to present another exciting group composition project for students, Firebird Forensics, incorporating an incredible professional learning opportunity for teachers.
