The Inner Vision Orchestra was founded in 2012 and is the world's only professional ensemble of blind musicians.
Our extensive repertoire moves between songs from Iran, Lebanon, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, to soulful Gospel and Blues to sublime Indian Ragas and Western Classical compositions. We celebrate the diversity of its talented members who have been brought together from around the world by Indian maestro Baluji Shrivastav OBE.
Members of the orchestra burst onto the world stage at the Paralympics in 2012 to perform at the closing ceremony with Coldplay and performed International Unlimited Commission ‘Antardrishti-Inner Vision’ to full audiences at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Norwich Arts Centre, The Royal Opera House in Mumbai and The British Council Theatre in Delhi.
The Inner Vision Orchestra tours and performs in prominent venues nationally, and during the pandemic ran a series of virtual concerts. Members of the orchestra also give music workshops. 'Driven by the intensity of an inner vision we believe in the power of music to transform lives!'
