Music and Disability11 Feb 2014
Alex Lubet, author of Music, Disability
and Society has completed a ten year research study into music and its influence on people with a disability
People come alive when they are singing or playing and their disability is no longer at the forefront, but instead it is their performance that is.
Alex writes about a ‘blind orchestra’ with a ‘sighted conductor’ in Cairo, Egypt. As well as people risking their lives in Afghanistan and Pakistan to perform. To let their music transform them as they share their gift with the audience.
It’s amazing how people with disabilities can overcome and use other senses to give an outstanding performance.
