The British Paraorchestra became the first orchestra of disabled musicians to perform in a joint project with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, at Symphony Hall in February 2017.

Conducted by Hazlewood, the programme included the world premiere of a new and wildly unprecedented full orchestral version of Corelli’s La Follia, a new work by Adrian Lee, and a grand slam performance of Associate Music Director and principal clarinettist of the Paraorchestra Lloyd Coleman’s Towards Harmony. 

The concert further reinforces the Paraorchestra & Friends’ objective to fully integrate disabled musicians into the orchestral tradition.
