Sharing the magic of music

Olivia Hansen of Year 11 and Klara Decker-Stewart of Year 9 have been busy performing and rehearsing with Sydney Youth Orchestras (SYO) for various community events.

Olivia and Klara recently performed at the “Meet the Orchestra” SYO series at Mosman Art Gallery, sharing their music and knowledge of music for an audience of young children.

The pair, who both play the violin, enjoyed offering their own experiences to young people who were eager to learn more about playing an instrument.

On Monday 21 May, the students will perform with the SYO at the Heart for Hush fundraising event at City Recital Hall.

The event supports the Hush Foundation, an organisation that commissions independent Australian music which is played in hospitals across Australia to reduce the anxiety of children, families and healthcare staff.

Olivia and Klara will also perform with well-renowned pianist Anna Goldsworthy at this event.
