Specialist / Generalist / All levels
Incorporating Indigenous content into student learning is a priority for the classroom at all levels. In this session, Jess Hitchcock will perform and teach attendees Deborah Cheetham’s Long Time Living Here - the MSO’s commissioned musical Acknowledgment of Country, now being performed at the beginning of every MSO concert. Attendees will learn how to respectfully and meaningfully engage with Indigenous content and what is considered important essential knowledge. Resources will further be provided to support the musical exploration of our First Peoples culture. Together, host Sylvia Hosking and Jess will have a conversation around the big issues around language and other topics. There will also be a Q&A for attendees to pose their burning questions.
