Come on a magical, musical storytelling adventure with Darwin Symphony Orchestra! 
Children will love creating stories to music and listening to a beautiful picture book brought to life with a live string quartet! 
This event will feature a reading of Brother Moon, written by Maree McCarthy Yoelu, accompanied by original music by NT Composer Netanela Mizrahi. Everyone can join in with a creative drawing activity with illustrator Samantha Fry. 
Children will enjoy a performance of Mendelssohn and Beethoven string quartets, and write a creative story or poem, or draw a scene inspired by the music.  
This event will conclude with a choose-your-own musical adventure as audience members work together to create a story that will be translated before their eyes into a musical soundtrack by our talented string quartet.  
This event is suitable for children aged 4 –10.  
Approximate duration: 40 minutes
Two session times available: 9:30am & 11.00am
