Australia’s a big country, but members of its youth orchestra struggle to find a bit of peace and quiet.


  • John Borstlap says:

    Amusing…. We know that Wagner loved the black swans (his short piano Albumblatt: ‘Ankunft bei den schwarzen Schwänen’), and the sympathy seems to be mutual.

  • Cyril Blair says:

    The acoustics sure are good outdoors in Australia…

  • Myrtar says:

    I like that their slogan is “Expect the unexpected”. That’s how I always feel when someone tries to convince me to go see a Youth Orchestra’s performance.

  • Brian Hughes says:

    I love it. The advertisement is quite creative and, most of all, fun!
