Explore Antarctica with Alice Giles and Liena Lacey as they guide students through the frozen wonder of this fascinating continent with sounds of the harp, seals, penguins, water, wind and ice. Watch footage from Alice’s own Antarctic expedition and hear music by Australian composers – written specifically to be performed in Antarctica – with the odd sea shanty included. Get your penguin flippers ready, as every student will be invited to discover the sound of the harp with their own hands.
