DaDaFest Youth Music Ensemble and very special guests!
Thursday 11th July, 2pm – 3pm
Live from Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Experience the excitement of DaDaFest Scratch, a growing music event which showcases the creative talents of developing artists who are D/deaf or disabled from the Liverpool city region, by joining us for this live performance from their Ensemble, broadcast direct from the Liverpool Philharmonic.

The DaDaFest Ensemble will premiere a new composition written by the developing artists with composers Ben Lunn and Carmel Smickersgill.

For the first time, DaDaFest Scratch and Connect: Resound are taking this performance beyond the concert hall so that young people can be part of the event, wherever they are in the country! The event will showcase exciting and expressive music performances by young D/deaf and disabled artists. There will be plenty of opportunities for audience interaction too – no instruments required!

To tune in, simply visit on 11 July at 2pm and you can watch live.
