Episode 070 - The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

We sat with Lisa Rodio, Tim Steiner and Fraser Gordon at their rehearsal space in the north of London and discussed why they do what they do and what we can expect from them in the near future.

When you mix musical melodies and rhythm with movement and communication, a dose of humor and shared emotion, the result can be nothing short of magic.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, based in London, has been able to make this possible through the work of professional classical musicians along with music scholars, educators, therapists and healthcare providers.

They created this experience with amazing programs like Strokestra, and The Irene Taylor Trust 'Music in Prisons' through The Lullaby Project.

RPO continues to provide these special experiences to groups around the UK and beyond, as well as to schools with children with disabilities, centers for autism and more.

Check out our website for more information on both of these projects.

Song List:

Song 1: Troyte - Barry Wordsworth conducts Elgar Song 2: Dead Elvis - Charles Ullery (Michael Daugherty) Song 3: Lullaby Song 4: Strokestra Song 5: Nimrod - Barry Wordsworth conducts Elgar
