Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s 2019 Impact Award, BSO Resound continues to receive international attention for igniting change. The group became the world’s first professional disabled-led ensemble at the core of a major symphony orchestra when it launched in 2018 and it is known for forging partnerships that champion inclusivity.

Alongside colleagues from Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, BSO Resound made a high-profile debut at the 2018 BBC Proms, when it became the first disabled-led group to perform at the festival. Further highlights have included performances at the Parallel Festival, the BSO’s Proms in the Park, and alongside the National Open Youth Orchestra as part of its inaugural UK tour, in 2022.

In recent years BSO Resound has given world premieres of works by composers Alexander Campkin, Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian and Shirley J Thompson OBE. In 2023, it unites with RNS Moves to give the world premiere of Kate Whitley’s Falling —alongside Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra at Lighthouse, Poole, and Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage Gateshead — in main season livestreamed performances.

Allianz Musical Insurance (AMI) has been Supporting Partner of BSO Resound since its formation and continues to support the BSO’s work in ensuring a creative and vibrant world of inclusive music-making.
