Term 2 2017

This term, Piano Project will continue its program at the Western English Language School in Braybrook, at the Collingwood English Language School in Collingwood and at the Kensington Community High School. We are also sponsoring lessons for children at the Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Braybrook, and for children attending Foundation House in Sunshine.  

We are in discussions with the Migrant Information Centre in Box Hill and with the Australian Syrian Charity in Brunswick and hope to have new programs up and running in collaboration with these groups by the end of this year.  

 

The Princess and the Pea

Piano Project is delighted to be collaborating with Victorian Opera to bring a group of children from the Western English Language School to see their production of The Princess and the Pea. The kids are all new arrivals to Australia and new to English. Many of them come from refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds. Nothing makes us happier than the idea of these kids enjoying this danish tale on an opera stage. May their smiles be large and their singing loud.

Mozart Minors

Piano Project took a group of kids from the Refugee Migrant Children Centre to see 3MBS's Mozart Minors today. An exciting journey exploring the life of Mozart through his music, beginning with the child prodigy’s very first composition at only five years of age, the kids learnt about the music of Mozart’s childhood, with performances for piano, string quartet, and clarinet quintet. They even had a chance to conduct – just like Mozart! 

September 2016 - School Holidays

Piano Project is organising an outing these school holidays for some of the primary school aged kids in the schools where our programme is running. We’re bringing them to see Songmakers Australia do Banjo Paterson’s “The Animals Noah Forgot”. It is a cabaret for children about Australian animals, with piano and singing.

Piano Project is hoping to fill half the spots for the Tuesday session. So for those of you with little people looking for something fun to do in school hols, please get yourselves some ticks and come along. It will be a really lovely morning.
