Classical composition

Neurodivergent teachers are taking centre stage; as are members of the homeless community. Diversity is an increasingly important theme in the creative sector.

For evidence, look no further than this British charitable foundation, launched to promote equality in classical music.

The founder, a double-bass player and teacher of African heritage, put together her own orchestra comprising Black and ethnically diverse classical musicians. A second orchestra, for those aged between 11 and 22, was launched at the same time.

The orchestra recently recorded a jazz variation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, as arranged by Duke Ellington in the 1960s. A yuletide classic that can be enjoyed all year round.

Apropos: how about a relaunch of the special Christmas app for blind people?
