Rediscovering a relationship with music

The Bristol Drugs Project’s Recovery Orchestra is open to anyone who’s been affected by alcohol or other drug use, and has a willingness to play an instrument. This project provides a space for people to learn about music and to perform in a safe and supportive environment with people who’ve had similar experiences.

Here’s what the performers say…

“We celebrate our own imperfections. It’s part of something bigger than ourselves and that’s what makes it powerful and beautiful.  There’s the development, there’s the sobriety and growth. That is so beautiful. We’ve got an orchestra as part of a creative recovery – we’re in business guys, we’re in business love love love!”

“I used to be quite involved with music but like then I went through shit as well, and I just stopped doing any music. It’s sparked up a little bit to get more involved doing music now, it was so emotional and amazing in every way. We all did an amazing job.”

“The progress in 8 weeks I think has been astonishing, especially for people who have not played in a group before.”
