EDUCATION & COMMUNIT Y ENGAGEMENT 2017 PAUL RISSMANN EDUCATION WEEK FREE PROGRAMS REGIONAL & REMOTE OUTREACH & MUCH MORE


2


Driven by a belief that quality musical experiences should be an opportunity that all people have in their lives, our Education & Community Engagement program has been shaped to cater for audience members big and small, wherever they live across our state. New partnerships will assist us to reach even more people than ever before at the Perth Concert Hall, in community settings and classrooms across Western Australia. We are proud to celebrate the achievements of our nationally recognised programs, excited about new initiatives and delighted that we can continue to offer many opportunities for free, to ensure access for individuals who live with social, financial or geographical disadvantage. We aim to provide children with valuable opportunities to expand creativity, self-expression, academic success and self-esteem. We hope to engage young people from an early age, and share a life-long journey with them. With this in mind, we offer a full range of participatory workshop and performance programs for babies through to Rusty Musicians, and everyone in between. In our third Education Week, we welcome international educationist, composer and presenter Paul Rissmann as our artist in residence. Featured on the front cover, Paul is visiting us as part of an extensive Australian Tour that will see him present three different programs including our new EChO11 ensemble in metropolitan Perth and regional WA. Paul’s programs will spark imaginations through composition, illustration and the written word. I would like to thank my dedicated colleagues and the passionate artists and organisations who work with and inspire us. I sincerely thank all of the individual donors, Trusts and Foundations, Corporate and Government partners who enable us to reach diverse audiences. I am extremely proud to present this program to you. We look forward to sharing our music with you in 2017.

CRESCENDO From little things big things grow…

“El Sistema’s primary focus is to create a daily haven of safety, joy and fun that builds every child’s self-esteem and sense of value.” Eric Booth, El Sistema USA

EL SISTEMA-INSPIRED MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAM 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. Our El Sistema-inspired music education program, Crescendo, started as a pilot program in Term 4 2014 and is the only one of its kind in Western Australia. Now in its third full year, Crescendo is currently providing weekly music lessons to all students from Pre-Primary to Year 3 at two Kwinana Primary schools - Medina Primary School and North Parmelia Primary 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. WASO aims to provide music lessons to every student in every year level at these two schools and to work with the Kwinana community to provide them with opportunities to develop confidence, resilience, emotional and social well-being.

FREE

Teachers and parents from both schools have reported on improved concentration, self-confidence, behaviour and enthusiasm for learning music. Students regularly perform at school assemblies and in front of their peers and family members. In addition to their weekly lesson, students also have the opportunity to attend WASO performances at Perth Concert Hall as part of Education Week, and to hear our Education Chamber Orchestra (EChO) perform in their local community. “This is a wonderful program and I am so glad that my daughter will get to participate again in Year One. It offers a range of opportunities to these children that they would not normally have access to. The development of a love of music is a precious gift to give. Thank you!” Parent, Crescendo student

When King Colin’s golden underpants go missing and the royal bottom is bared, it’s Sir Scallywag to the rescue! Brave and bold, courageous and true, he’s the perfect knight for the job… and what does it matter that he’s only six?! Alongside other pieces including Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, Sir Scallywag features lots of audience participation and illustrated projections (including a brief appearance of the King’s bare bottom!). This laugh-out-loud musical adventure is based on the book by Giles Andreae, illustrated by Korky Paul.

Headlining this concert is Paul Rissmann’s irresistible musical adventure based on Jason Chapman’s book Stan and Mabel. With performances of additional great orchestral repertoire, this highly interactive program will captivate students with its mix of music, illustrated projections and audience participation. Rissmann (pictured) and WASO tell the story of a music-loving dog and cat in a journey to find the Greatest Orchestra in the World. Join us for a special II-piece EChO adaptation in Mandurah.

COMMUNIT Y OUTREACH WASO is dedicated to providing access to quality musical experiences for individuals across the State. Our Community Outreach programs continue to provide our organisation with some of our most special music sharing experiences, and speak to the heart of our company mission to touch souls and enrich lives through music.

HOSPITAL ORCHESTRA PROJECT (HOP) FREE Profiled at the 8th Annual International Arts and Healthcare Conference and featured on the front cover of The Chamber of Arts and Culture Western Australia’s Report on the ‘Examination of the Use of Arts to Improve Health and Healing in Western Australian Hospitals’, HOP has been running since 2008 in partnership with the School of Special Educational Needs: Medical and Mental Health (SSEN:MMH). WASO provide vital emotionally supportive experiences, a connection to the community outside hospital and access to The Arts learning area through presentation of a broad range of performance and participatory music programs, as well as visits to children in classrooms and on the wards. Performances are broadcast throughout the hospital on Starlight TV.

Presented in partnership with:

HARMONY MUSIC FREE We encourage you to book early for this program! It sees small ensembles perform informal classroom presentations, share stories about life working in an orchestra and introduce students to the instruments of the orchestra through interactive have-a-go sessions and performances of well-known and popular repertoire. WASO is proud to have relationships with a number of schools with Special Educational Needs departments, and this program allows us to share our music with students with disabilities in the comfort of their school environment. To book a small ensemble to perform at your school, contact Lily Protter, Community Engagement Assistant on protterl@waso.com.au
