Making Waves is the latest in the ongoing collaboration between Hebrides Ensemble and the acclaimed Drake Music Scotland Digital Orchestra.

It features a dynamic list of disabled composers from across the UK, including: Brit Awards ‘Future Sound of Britain’ composer Megan Steinberg; long-term Drake collaborator Ewan MacKay; and the energised music of Martin Gaughan.

Alongside these stalwarts are four emerging composers: Meg Kelly, Kat Stephenson, Harry Woodman, and electronic artist Naafi.

The concert will feature many of the pioneering accessibility hallmarks for which Drake Music Scotland is renowned, including information about each piece from a host, captions, BSL interpretation and a sensory area.

“We’re so excited to be working with Hebrides Ensemble players again in one of our all-time favourite venues – the Queens Hall,” says Pete Sparkes, Artistic Director, Drake Music Scotland. “This is the third time we’ve asked some of the most exciting disabled composers in the UK to write new music specially for our unique ensembles featuring acoustic and digital instruments sharing an equal platform.”

Access Scheme: You are now able to book a wheelchair and/or free companion space online. You can read more about how to do this here.
