Amelia-Rose Hamilton

I am a friend of Lloyd's and was so grateful to play his piece in Bristol as I play piano for the British Paraorchestra. He advised me to get in touch as I also compose and am really hoping to create a composition that would be accessible to disabled musicians throughout the country and also patients in hospital. I envision this to be a 'virtual orchestra' experience whereby we will record parts and people singing from different musicians, bringing those of challenging backgrounds to the for-front, showing skills as talented, disabled/ unwell musicians and patients to close the gap between ill health and the arts. I would be overjoyed if you would be able to support me in any way for this project.
