Music of the Forest 

An intimate and immersive introduction to classical music for children

In the Utzon Room

“In the forest, nothing is wasted.”

Bryony Anderson, Designer

A unique and intimate classical music experience

Venture through the fern-filled and leaf-littered forest paths of the Frugal Forest, an installation made entirely from salvaged materials, and listen to the stories the forest people have to share. Deep in the forest stands a clearing where kids will find themselves immersed by a unique and intimate classical music experience. 

Featuring iconic music from renowned composers (including Wagner and Messiaen), this incredible music experience will introduce kids to the instrument families and the ways in which music can be used to capture the sounds of an environment.

Presented by Sydney Opera House and Frugal Arts Inc.
