4orte: Championing Performances by Deaf Musicians

Music and the Deaf presents: The 4ORTE Ensemble, a unique group of the finest deaf and hard of hearing musicians in the UK. They will perform an exciting mix of solo, accompanied and ensemble music, joined by guest performers who also have a level of hearing loss.

The 4ORTE musicians will also each give a brief talk about their lives and their experiences as professional deaf musicians, and hope to inspire both deaf and hearing people alike that music should be for all, regardless of a person’s level of hearing.
