Disability and Music: An Insight into the Able Orchestra Experience

Wednesday 12 December 2018, 12:30-1:30pm

Djanogly Recital Hall, Nottingham Lakeside Arts

Presented as part of Disability December 2018

The evolution of the Able Orchestra has been a remarkable story. The ensemble was borne out of a partnership between Orchestras Live and Inspire Youth. In 2014/15 young people with moderate to profound disabilities from Special Educational Needs (SEN) schools and colleges in and around Mansfield worked alongside professional sound and digital artists and members of the BBC Concert Orchestra. They have since developed a strong relationship with the Hallé (ranked amongst the world’s top symphonic ensembles) leading to a performance at the BBC Proms in 2016 at the Royal Albert Hall.

Join us to learn more about Able Orchestra and see how these amazing young people compose and perform wonderful music.
