We’re delighted to announce our partnership with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra’s disabled-led ensemble, BSO Resound.

Last year the BSO made history by becoming the first Orchestra in the world to form a professional disabled-led ensemble. Six months after the ensemble’s creation, BSO Resound became the first disabled-led ensemble to ever perform at the BBC Proms.

Conductor James Rose said, “I am delighted that BSO Resound has a new supporting partner in Allianz Musical Insurance. Given the company’s passion for inclusion initiatives, and BSO Resound’s ambition to use music to challenge attitudes and perceptions about disability, they are a perfect fit as our corporate sponsor. I hope that together we will inspire people, with or without disabilities, to pursue a career in music, as well as opening up more opportunities for diversity and accessibility within the sector.”

BSO Resound has an exciting year ahead which kicks off with a tour in Dorset and a series of performances in Devon and Cornwall as a part of the Orchestra’s residencies in both counties.

Our partnership comes as BSO Resound celebrates its first anniversary and will chart the ensemble’s artistic journey and development over the course of the year.
