The Red Tree
There's an article in The Australian about what sounds like a fascinating project: a musical collaboration based on Shaun Tan's fabulous picture book, The Red Tree.
The project brings together Richard Tognetti, Australian Chamber Orchestra artistic director, with composer Michael Yezerski, and the Gondwana Voices children's choir director Lyn Williams.
The performance will take place against a backdrop of illustrations from the book - a beautiful story about depression and hope.
Tan is best known as the author of The Arrival, but has a number of other wonderful books out there. There's a great interview with Tan by Elizabeth Bird at her School Library Journal blog.
