Dunedin Symphony Orchestra member Lydia Ford plays the French Horn for pupils at St Mary's School in Dunedin yesterday.

Six members of the orchestra gave pupils a taste of what their instruments sounded like and how they were played. It is part of a two-week-long tour of primary schools around the Otago region, which aims to encourage young people to learn a musical instrument.

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.
