The British Paraorchestra is one of the artists and companies who have won 2017 Unlimited commissions.

The British Paraorchestra is the world’s first large-scale professional ensemble of disabled musicians, a boundary-breaking outfit that is unlike any orchestra you’ve seen or heard. Their mission is to perform phenomenal music that captivates an audience, pushing the artform forward and proving beyond a doubt that disability is no barrier to talent.

VELOCITY is a music performance piece devised by Paraorchestra musicians with Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory. The brief is for a long-form composition with an added dimension. For the first time, Will’s music will be crafted to be danced as well as played.
