More than 300 Santos employees and their families recently enjoyed a stunning display of musical prowess by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra featuring lively animal classics held at the Grainger Studios in Adelaide.
Put on as part of Santos’ principal partnership with the ASO, the free family concert included the classic Peter and the Wolf and the Musical Zoo.
The hugely successful Prokofiev’s Peter & The Wolf, in its 75th anniversary year and loved by children all over the world, had each character in the narrated story played by different instruments in the orchestra. After that, up-beat and easy going songs told the story of a young girl’s trip to the zoo, where she encountered many musically depicted animals, but none making the sound she was searching for.
David Sharp, ASO Conductor said: “It’s a great thrill to be able to present this to Santos who have been such wonderful supporters of the orchestra.”
