A Fabulous Pink Boa + ASO’s Amazing String Quartet = Holiday Magic!

Miss Lily’s Fabulous Pink Feather Boa, performed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s String Quartet, was an enchanting School Holiday event at the Library this week. Margaret Wild’s classic Australian picture book was brought to life in the Library’s Relaxed Reading Area through a lively narration by the Storyteller and an emotive music score on strings. The audience joined the little Last Potoroo on a journey of friendship and fun at Miss Lily’s Boarding House. Featuring many fabulous pink feather boas and a tango-dancing crocodile, the performance was a celebration of music and storytelling.

Two violins, a viola, a cello and an enthusiastic teller of tales.

The children were thoroughly engrossed in the story.

What will she do?

Oh no! Potoroo! What are you doing?

How far will a Potoroo go for a piece of boa?

The Potoroo regrets her rash action...
