Arts and Music Programmes At Orpheus we follow a core curriculum during the week and all our students have a special interest in the arts. Through studying the arts students develop confidence, acquire the freedom to express themselves and are able to interact effectively with others. These skills help young disabled adults to succeed in independent living. Additionally, it develops students' self-esteem and assertiveness so that they know what they want, can make their views known and have the resilience to cope when things go wrong. Students take part in our professional performance practice day when we work towards the two public shows per year. There are intensive weeks where we devise and develop a theme leading to a performance on a range of topics in a week and then students demonstrate what they have learnt and produced to a paying audience. Student are also able to go on outreach weeks to a range of external organisations where they support others to write songs or create art installations. This culminates in a showcase to an external audience. To book tickets for an Orpheus production take a look at our What's On page here.
