Event Details


Drake Music Scotland is delighted to announce the launch of Scotland’s first Digital Orchestra.

Our new Digital Orchestra will develop our pioneering work enabling young musicians with disabilities to take part in music tuition, composition and performance using a range of music technologies which can be played by movement of the hand, jaw clicks and even brainwaves.

The launch performance on Friday 8 April at 4pm will be the culmination of months of weekly rehearsal followed by an intensive week collaborating with genre-defying electric violinist Ian Peaston creating a new kind of music that challenges perceptions and transforms attitudes towards disabled musicians.
