Our 2022 Education Program is designed to engage and delight children and families! This year, we present some exciting new initiatives for young music lovers and musicians.

Join the Darwin Symphony Orchestra String Quartet on Saturday 12 November for a morning of musical underwater adventures with Sketch the Sounds of the Sea. Children will have the chance to see music come to life as they draw along with our string quartet while they perform famous water-themed classics. This interactive performance is ideal for children aged 0-10 years. For more information and to book, click the event listing below.

In October, join the full orchestra at Darwin Entertainment Centre for Family Proms. This special, family-friendly event will showcase the whole symphony orchestra to young listeners, sparking intrigue in classical music for the whole family. Young audience members are able to participate with dancing, clapping, singing and moving their bodies to the music, and might even get a chance to conduct the orchestra!

Family Proms is an unmissable morning of fun for the whole family. To book, click the event below.
