BBC National Orchestra of Wales

During 2013, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales presented a series of five large-scale concerts designed to be as appropriate as possible for deaf and hard of hearing adults and children. The brainchild of trumpeter Andy Everton, the concerts featured the full orchestra performing to a total of more than 3,000 adults and children. The audience was invited to sit inside the orchestra, touch the instruments and literally feel the music as the musicians played. Communication methods were used to aid engagement, including sign language and text relay. Graphic representations of the music, along with live video feeds of the concert and signing, were also displayed via three large screens in the hall. This video includes clips from the concerts and interviews with key artists and participants, alongside footage captured during the concerts by five cameras.
