DSO Kids' Classics – Play me a Story

The first instalment of the Darwin Symphony Orchestra's (DSO) new education series Kids' Classics explores how to tell a story through music.

By Chelsea Heaney.

Designed specifically for a younger audience, Play me a Story offers an entertaining and educational experience for kids of all ages. The DSO Quartet’s performance is led by DSO Concertmaster Monica Naselow. 

Naselow is the driving force behind these Kids’ Classics concerts, as a part of her new ground-breaking role as the DSO Education/Outreach Officer. A position that is aimed at further building the sustainability and development of classical music education in the Northern Territory, Naselow’s extensive experience and acclaimed career, alongside her passion for music education, makes her an ideal candidate to lead these musical performances. Naselow has also spent time mentoring young musicians via her work with the Australian Youth Orchestra and the Australian National Academy of Music, and recently led a DSO ensemble on a schools tour to Alice Springs.

This inaugural concert invites attendees to hear how music can be used to tell a story and also encourages you to make up your own tale. 

Following this first show, the DSO will be holding two other special Kids’ Classics events this year with Musical Magic! in September and a special Christmas performance in December. 

The concerts run for around 45 minutes and include some time for questions from any young aspiring musicians or curious guests. 

Sat 22 Jul | 9.30am & 11am | Taminmin College, Humpty Doo

Sun 23 Jul | 9.30am & 11am | Charles Darwin University Theatre
