B’Tutta brings joy of mu­sic to stu­dents

Pilbara News - - News -

With a gift for break­ing bar­ri­ers, per­cus­sion en­sem­ble B’Tutta headed to Ex­mouth last week to work and per­form with lo­cal stu­dents.

The visit in­cluded ad­di­tional work­shop ac­tiv­ity at Ex­mouth District High School and cul­mi­nated in a free Com­mu­nity Con­cert at Fed­er­a­tion Park on Fri­day.

Mu­sica Viva WA State man­ager Chris Van Tuinen said mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion had a pro­found im­pact on the lives of stu­dents at all lev­els. “We are bring­ing this ex­pe­ri­ence and more to stu­dents in Ex­mouth to­gether with the op­por­tu­nity to share their mu­sic­mak­ing with the com­mu­nity,” he said.

Quad­rant En­ergy chief ex­ec­u­tive Brett Dar­ley said the pro­gram was a way for the com­mu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing that may oth­er­wise be out of reach. “It is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for the stu­dents to learn new skills and for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether to en­joy their bud­ding mu­si­cians,” he said.

Rio Tinto com­mu­ni­ties and com­mu­ni­ca­tions gen­eral man­ager Linda Daw­son said the en­sem­ble brought the joy of mu­sic to re­gional stu­dents.
