Drake Music Scotland’s Digital Orchestra has returned triumphantly after their first international performance at the True Colours Festival in Singapore.
Over an intensive 7 days, the world’s first disabled youth orchestra gave three performances at Singapore’s National Stadium in front of a total audience of more than 10,000. Members of the team also presented at the associated International Disability Arts Conference, attended a reception hosted by Singapore’s President and gave interviews on Singapore TV and radio.
We are very grateful to Creative Scotland, British Council and Singapore Airlines for supporting this first international performance of our Digital Orchestra.
