Drake Music Scotland Digital Orchestra and NYOS Futures
Digital Orchestra and NYOS Futures will perform new music created in collaboration with NYOS Jazz Director Malcolm Edmonstone. Digital Orchestra is a group of talented young musicians with disabilities who play and rehearse under the guidance of Drake Music Scotland. Using standard instruments alongside music technology, this performance will offer a unique insight into the cutting edge playing of these amazing young musicians and improvisers – forging new styles and great tunes.
Digital Orchestra developed out of an inclusive ensemble created for Technophonia, a performance project which debuted as part of London’s 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Digital Orchestra became the world’s first disabled youth music ensemble in 2016. They have since performed their own compositions at numerous high profile events and collaborated with top composers and musicians.
