Event description

Description

We are teaming up with the wonderful Ricciotti Orchestra to provide a relaxed performance for children with autism and their families. The aim of the event is to bring the experience of live music to those in our communities who often face barriers accessing it. Children will have an opportunity to explore the instruments, meet the musicians in an environment suited to their needs. The Orchestra will have had training from Tailor Ed to ensure that runs the event as smoothly as possible.

The most energetic orchestra in the world will be visiting Scotland between July 28th and August 4th and will play a modest 35 performances in 8 days. Founded in 1970, the Ricciotti Ensemble has audience participation and broad programming in its DNA and its performances are a true celebration of music and life in itself. With the average musician’s age at 22 years old, the organisation aims to provide high-quality community performance experiences for its emerging artists at the outset of their professional careers.

Please join us on the 2nd of August at Mayfield Salisbury Church. Doors open at 10:30 and the performance begins at 11am. The music will last for around 40 minutes and there will be time for the children to explore the instruments and meet the musicians after. All families are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and stay at the church afterwards.

To see the ensemble in action, take a look at their trailer on YouTube:
