The Inner Vision Orchestra Quintet with Baluji Shrivastav OBE
Sat 3 Jun| 7.30pm | Pay What You Decide
The Inner Vision Orchestra was founded in 2012 and is the world’s only professional ensemble of blind musicians. Their extensive repertoire moves between songs from Iran, Lebanon, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, to soulful Gospel and Blues to sublime Indian Ragas and Western Classical compositions. They celebrate the diversity of their talented members who have been brought together from around the world by Indian maestro Baluji Shrivastav OBE.
Members of the orchestra burst onto the world stage at the Paralympics in 2012 to perform at the closing ceremony with Coldplay and performed International Unlimited Commission ‘Antardrishti-Inner Vision’ to full audiences at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Norwich Arts Centre, The Royal Opera House in Mumbai and The British Council Theatre in Delhi. They regularly tour and perform in top venues around the UK and have released music with Arc/Naxos.
The Inner Vision Orchestra is one of the main projects of The Baluji Music Foundation, which programmes and promotes blind and partially sighted musicians. It promotes equal working opportunities in music for blind and partially sighted people.
This event is Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the event.
Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for an event in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the event. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the event starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
