The amazing ‘Bader’s big Band‘ have their first performance at 7.oopm on Friday 7th September at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire where OHMI will be holding their 2018 Conference & Awards.
This promises to be a musical treat of an evening where guests will be able to hear The Petry Sisters playing Vivalid’s Double Cello Concerto and virtuoso French Horn Player, Felix Klieser, making his UK debut with Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4 as well as Bader’s Big Band in their first ever public performance.
The 2018 OHMI Conference will bring together its annual OHMI awards with a major conference for academics and practitioners in which the barriers to music-making faced by those with physical disabilities will be explored. It will bring together current and planned research with the experiences of disabled musicians, teachers, and the work of charities and government agencies. The two-day conference will also feature concerts and demonstrations using recently developed technology and instrument designs. The challenge to enable full and undifferentiated participation in music for people with physical disabilities is a subject only recently receiving attention. It is hoped that sharing knowledge through this conference will stimulate further and more rapid developments in the coming years.
Tickets, £18 full price and £9 concessions, are now available and can be obtained through www.ohmi.org.uk. You can buy them for the whole first day of the conference or just for the evening concert. You won’t be disappointed!
