Based on the book written and illustrated by Jason Chapman, it tells the story of a music-loving dog and cat whose mission is to perform in the greatest orchestra in the world. This series of highly interactive concerts will captivate young children with its mix of music, illustrated projections, audience participation and imaginative narration.
Each performance will be followed by an ‘Instrument Petting Zoo’ with Melbourne Youth Orchestras, designed to introduce young audience members to the instruments of the orchestra.
