Come Play ‘Hide and Seek’ with the Orchestra
Calling all kids who love to have fun. Come along to Camden Civic Centre at 2pm on Sunday 17 March to play a good, old-fashioned game of ‘Hide and Seek!’
Fisher’s Ghost Youth Orchestra (FGYO) is back in town to dazzle the young and young at heart with the brilliant sights and sounds of a full live Orchestra in an intimate setting. The audience are encouraged to bring their favourite blanket or cushion to sit on while the Orchestra plays a specially formulated program designed to delight even the youngest of audience members.
FGYO harpists Sakura Murakami and Mikayla Butler are very excited to be performing. “The little kids get so excited when they see all the instruments, like violins, cellos, trumpets and timpani,” said Sakura. “This is my fourth year playing with FGYO, and these kid’s concerts are the most rewarding thing we do”.
“It wasn’t too long ago that I was in the audience!” said Mikayla, who joined FGYO in 2018. “I’m going to make sure our playing is perfect with lots of our best magical harp sounds to keep the kids entertained and enthralled”.
Maestro David Griffin, FGYO’s home-grown conductor and musical director, has planned a diverse repertoire for this year’s concert, from favourites such as the Sesame Street Song through to classical dances of the middle ages and modern TV and musical theatre hits. Maestro David said, “It’s a great program to listen to, and a fantastic program for our talented local musicians to play. FGYO rehearses each week on Thursday evening at Narellan Library, with beginner through to senior ensembles rehearsing in a non-competitive, non-judgemental environment. We’d love to see more musicians join us!”
