Sounding Out in Kettering

Having a relaxing time with your family is something everyone parent values and it can be even more difficult when you have a child with additional needs. Orchestras Live’s relaxed orchestral concerts aim to help everyone have a relaxed and enjoyable time no matter what their needs.
