In our Open School Orchestra project for students with disabilities, it became apparent that some had a lot of ability and interest in music, and would enjoy developing their skills further outside of school. This film discusses how creative ensembles might address this need, provide inclusive progression routes, and bridge the gap between Open School Orchestras and the more advanced regional and national open youth orchestras.

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:
