We develop the creative leadership skills of orchestras, musicians and promoters to increase the quality of engagement and sustainability of live orchestral music for future generations.

Darlington Hippodrome orchestral series
"You have awoken their musical aspirations and given me a fantastic foundation to build upon." - teacher
Our music and film project with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in Darlington built up the self-esteem of students participating in the project and helped them realise their musical talent.
Deaf and Disabled Music Leader Development Programme
Talented musicians whose careers have not previously encompassed music leading with orchestras have built skills and connections through our Deaf and Disabled Music Leader programme. Musicians on the programme have already been engaged for professional work with orchestras including City of London Sinfonia and the Royal Philhamornic Orchestra.
"Thank you for this amazing experience. I've learned lots and gained more confidence... being in an orchestra is a cool job." - participant
Over two years and six locations, Sound Around gave 113 Young Producers the opportunity to devise, develop, produce and present a full-scale orchestral concert for local primary school audiences from their local area.
