Under the direction of award-winning composer and educationalist, Paul Rissmann (UK), and London Symphony Orchestra violinist, Belinda McFarlane, students from three special schools in South Australia came together to undertake a series of collective composition workshops, supported by early-career teaching artists from Australian Youth Orchestra’s Momentum Ensemble. Inspired by the heart-warming Australian picture book "Fancy Pants", by Kelly Hibbert and Amanda Graham, the five-day program of music-making and creativity was designed to empower and engage students of all abilities and experience.
