Who needs cannons when you’ve got paper bags?
Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture is known for its ringing chimes, brass fanfare finale and climactic bursts of cannon fire.
However, Sydney-based group TunED Up!, a group of teachers led by conductor Anthony Pasquill alongside alongside the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, didn’t have any cannons to hand… but they did have plenty of paper bags.
The week-long course focuses on music pedagogy ‘with a passion and desire to develop or expand music programs within their school community’.
Talk about being resourceful – we’ll give these teachers 10/10 for their absolutely brilliant performance.
