EDUCATION & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT 2016


CONTENTS Kilian, age 4

The West Australian Symphony Orchestra’s Education and Community Engagement program has undergone exponential growth in recent years, as we strive to offer people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to enjoy music in their lives. We are passionate about sharing our dynamic and entertaining program with communities across the state. In 2015, WASO presented more than 80 Education and Community Engagement performances, presentations and workshops. Some were stand-alone initiatives, others were supplementary to the subscription season concerts at Perth Concert Hall. All encourage active participation in, and enjoyment of, live musical performance, and many provide opportunities for young, pre-professional and adult musicians to sit side-by-side WASO musicians. Music for young people, wherever they live in Western Australia, is one of our highest priorities and the extensive portfolio of Education and Community Engagement programs that the Orchestra deliver speak to the heart of our company vision to touch souls and enrich lives through music. A large number of WASO’s Education programs are offered free, to ensure access to students who live with social, financial or geographical disadvantage. For WASO musicians, their involvement in the delivery of these programs, and the ability to share their knowledge, reminds them that their music is a gift – one that they can share with a broad range of students and community members in a variety of settings. My sincere thanks to the individual donors, Trusts and Foundations, Corporate and Government partners who enable us to build relationships with individuals and communities that have a profound effect on all involved. We hope you will join us in 2016.

ECHO IN SCHOOLS

ECHO’S 21ST BIRTHDAY PARTY! These programs are unique in Perth and Western Australia, and WASO is the only major performing arts company in the state working with Principals and school communities to deliver free, ongoing and regular music education programs in schools. Now teaching music to more than 300 students in Kwinana and Onslow, our goal is to reach young people who live with disadvantage and to ignite their excitement for learning through active participation in music making and creative play.

EL SISTEMA-INSPIRED MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAM

“Music saved my life and has saved thousands of at risk children… like food, like health care, like education, music has to be a right for every citizen.” Gustavo Dudamel El Sistema Venezuela graduate, Music Director, Los Angeles Philharmonic.

WASO’s El Sistema-inspired Music Education Program is being delivered to three Kwinana Primary schools - Medina Primary School, North Parmelia Primary School and Kwinana Christian School. All students enrolled in Pre-Primary join the program and start with vocal lessons as a strong foundation for the introduction of string instruments in later years. Inspired by the Venezuelan El Sistema, WASO aims to provide music lessons to every student in every year level at these three schools and to work with the Kwinana community to provide them with opportunities to develop confidence, resilience, emotional and social well-being. Supported by:

The Stan Perron Charitable Foundation

Feilman Family Foundation

Teaching artists visit Onslow Primary School in the far North-West of WA for one week each term, using percussion and instrument making to teach the students music through ensemble playing and instrument building, movement and musical story telling. Onslow Kids Music Education Program (OK ME!) brings every student at the school together to actively engage in their learning through music. Students have already performed at a number of significant community events in Onslow. At the 2015 APRA AMCOS Art Music Awards, WASO received the WA State Award for Excellence in a Regional Area for WASO on The Road Touring and Onslow Kids Music Education (OK ME!) in West Pilbara.

YOUNG & EMERGING ARTISTS PROGRAMS WASO’s Young & Emerging Artists programs have been designed to bridge the gap from student life to musical career. They provide unique training opportunities for the next generation of creative musicians across a number of disciplines.

Composition Project in rehearsal.

INTERNATIONAL ARTIST MASTERCLASS PROGRAM FREE

COMPOSITION PROJECT

In 2016, the International Artist Masterclass Program will continue to inspire and celebrate Western Australia’s finest young musicians. Held at Callaway Auditorium at The University of Western Australia School of Music, this program provides valuable access to world-class visiting artists.

The Composition Project is an exciting initiative for young Western Australian composers to develop their skills in a professional environment through a series of workshops and rehearsals over a three month period. Participants are given the chance to experiment over time and develop their orchestral writing skills by composing a new work for a 15-piece ensemble, to be performed by WASO musicians and recorded in front of a live audience. Participants are mentored at all stages of the program both by the Artistic Director James Ledger, and by WASO personnel and musicians. The project has paved the way for previous participants to receive commissions and residencies with WASO, as well as utilise the recording of their work to seek placement in international composition workshops.
