Explore the magic of live music in an exciting collaboration with Orchestra Victoria!

Little Puggle’s song is a heart-warming story written by Vikki Conley and illustrated by Hélène Magisson about a lonely echidna searching for his voice.

Set to the sounds of woodwind, string and percussion instruments, this new work by composer Maria Grenfell brings Vicki Conley's wholesome picture book to life.

In this 30-minute interactive session, children will participate in the storytelling and learn all about the different instruments being played in the performance. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a musical story time that will have the kids singing and dancing all the way home!

Please note: there will be four 30-minute performances each day, at 10.30am, 12.00pm, 1.30pm and 3.00pm.
