Event Information

The TCS London Marathon takes place on Sunday 21 April and may affect your journey. See which roads will be affected and the parking restrictions that will be in operation across London on the London Marathon website.

Join 24 brilliant young disabled and non-disabled musicians for an uplifting afternoon of music mixing acoustic, electronic and accessible instruments – including the Seaboard RISE and the Clarion.

Alongside bold versions of audience favourites such as Anna Meredith's Nautilus, Vivaldi's 'Autumn’ from The Four Seasons and the musicians’ own choice of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, the orchestra will premiere music that speaks of themes close to their hearts.

Elements is an invitation to feel the devastating impact of climate change. Wittgenstein’s Chorale carries the orchestra’s message of inclusion, paying homage to a virtuoso left-handed pianist. In Soaring through Sparks we discover the Clarion, which some musicians play with head movement, and which is the first ever digital instrument to be assessed by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

This is a relaxed performance welcoming of disabled and neurodivergent audiences, families, and anyone else who would benefit from a less formal environment. 

Running time: 1 hour
