Recent exposure to classical music will have a lasting effect on George Town pupils, according to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. 

The TSO performed at George Town last week in front of pupils from Port Dalrymple School and South George Town Primary School.

More than 300 students attended the performance at George Town Memorial Hall for Mozart’s Magic Flute.

“There is a tremendous benefit for students to have exposure to orchestral music – it enriches and transforms students perceptions of music,” communications director Samuel Cairnduff said.

“The reaction from the students was very enthusiastic and they particularly enjoyed learning about the Mozart effect and having an opportunity to interact.”
