Open School Orchestras are the foundation of Bristol Plays Music’s ‘New Ambition for Inclusive Excellence.’ And now you can be part of one at Fast Forward Festival. Having won awards for Creative Music Technology, our partners OpenUp Music will be running workshops where you will be part of the most inclusive, cutting-edge ensemble using the latest assistive technology (which everyone can use) to make music alongside friends and family.
Whether you are a musician and want to try your hand (or your eye!) at using some of the latest inclusive instruments, or you are interested in how Bristol Plays Music are creating a whole new landscape in which absolutely everyone can make music together, taking part in an Open School Orchestra is guaranteed to open your eyes to a whole other dimension of possibility. And its also amazing fun!
Open Up Music empowers young disabled musicians to build inclusive youth orchestras. Together we develop accessible musical instruments and repertoire, challenge expectations and forge new progression routes through the creation of great music.
