A discussion around Open School Orchestras (OSOs) collaborating with mainstream students. As part of our OSO project for children with disabilities, we ran a small pilot bringing the OSO and a group of Year 10 GCSE students together at Richard Lander School, to create and perform music with Patrick Bailey. This film explores some of the benefits, musically and socially, of this way of approaching musical inclusion.
This project is run by Cornwall Music Service Trust, with funding from Cornwall Music Education Hub, and Youth Music. You can find out more about Open School Orchestras at:
