Perth Symphony Orchestra Incursion

St Luke’s music students had the absolute pleasure of being involved in a workshop facilitated by the Perth Symphony Orchestra.

The workshop involved an introduction to writing rap music with Brian Kruger, an award- winning rapper, arranger, composer, singer and PSO violinist. This workshop not only taught the techniques required to rap well, but also how to approach writing with an attitude that facilitates creativity and reconnects us with ourselves. Through the workshop students learned how rap music is not only a vehicle for song writing, but a method for investigating our relationship with music and the world at large. 

Our students had a lot of fun and composed some amazing raps to share with their peers. It was a delight to have both Brian and other talented members of the Perth Symphony Orchestra play their instruments for us at our school.
