She’ll encounter different animals, learn how to survive in the suburbs and bring everyone together in the the park. Through this lively story, you will meet the sections of the orchestra as they unite in a joyous symphony!
Justine Clarke on Mimi’s Symphony:
“It was so exciting creating a story that introduces the orchestra to Australian children with animals they are familiar with in a landscape that they relate to. Our protagonist Mimi the baby magpie is curious, capable and kind. Writing her story reminded me that there is great power in listening.”
