B’Tutta brings joy of music to students
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.
