We visit Paraorchestra Founder and Artistic Director Charles Hazlewood in his Bristol studio as the ensemble prepare for their performance of Death Songbook at Aviva Studios.

He discusses bringing together the world's first integrated ensemble of disabled and non-disabled musicians, defying expectations, death as the last taboo and consequently celebrating all things loss on their new album Death Songbook.

Paraorchestra bring their exquisite reimagining of iconic songs exploring love, loss and transcendence to Aviva Studios on 26 April 2024, joined by some very special vocalists: Paraorchestra with Brett Anderson, Charles Hazlewood & Gwenno: Death Songbook.
