Opera Factory Workshop: Instrumental Music

If you have a musical instrument and would like to increase your repertoire, come and learn to play in different styles including classical, folk and jazz. If not, there’ll be a percussion instrument ready for you to have a go anyway!

Thanks to Renewal SA and City of Port Adelaide Enfield, this free 2-hour workshop includes professional string, wind and percussion musicians providing demonstrations and assistance, and conclude with a rousing group percussion piece.

Experience is not necessary, but registrations are essential. See below for more details.
