Last month, a group of students from the Soldiers’ Settlement Public School, Matraville visited our new interactive and immersive ACO VIRTUAL installation in the Sydney Opera House Studio. These students participate in the string program which we run in collaboration with the Australian Children’s Music Foundation, and now have their own string ensemble!
The students spent the morning interacting with the installation, experimenting with the controller and exploring the music in a way they had never experienced before. They then had a guided tour of our studio. Some of the students wrote in to say thanks – a few even contributed artwork!
