Never mind the Paralympics, this is the Paraorchestra. The musicians and conductor Charles Hazlewood made their London debut at the Southbank Centre, with Dame Evelyn Glennie and the Marc Brew Company, recognising and showcasing disabled musicians with extraordinary abilities.
Founder of the British Paraorchestra, Charles Hazlewood introduces the players. "The best thing about being here is that every person has mentioned music, and has not mentioned disability once," he said. "We think of Handel the musician not the blind man, or Beethoven the composer, not Beethoven the deaf man."
