What we're listening to...

 

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Tune in to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra YouTube channel at 7.30 on Thursdays for live performances. Make it a family affair, or enjoy it on your own!
 

Tune in to the Ballet

Find it here: The Australian Ballet

Stream high quality ballet performances from your television or laptop totally free! There's a section to sign up for notification so you know exactly when a new ballet is released. Romeo and Juliet is on the schedule, which is great for our Year 9 students studying the text this year.
 

Watch the Theatre

Find it here: Limelight Magazine & The Age 
 
In response to the pandemic, theatre has also gone digital. Here are some round ups of the theatre companies offering digital streams of their 2020 stage productions.
 

ANZAC Day Music Concert

In case you missed the ANZAC Day Music from the Home Front coverage, Channel 9 is offering a live stream for you to view at home.
 

Music Reviews

'Bernard Zuel has been listening to music since the glory days of vinyl and writing about music since the noisy days of typewriters’. Bernard’s website contains interesting interviews and information on the latest in music and entertainment.
 

Podcasts

Find it here: The NY Times
 
While many are feeling the distance of living far from their loved ones during quarantine, this NY Times podcast is finding the solution. This new podcast covers the recipes a granddaughter is learning from her grandmother, via Facetime during self-isolation.
