Soundbeam Permanent Orchestra

This is just a step of the journey that will lead us to the creation of a permanent orchestra, made up of people with disabilities, music lover educators, professional musicians and stage actors.

The Foundation Provvida Madre of Balerna (CH) has been and will be the venue for our musical encounters.

About ten young guests of the Foundation and some educators, trained by Maurizio Rocca, will be part of the ensemble.

Why do we need your help?

Thanks to the money that we collect, we’ll fund a laboratory, on a weekly basis, for the entire 2016/17 school year.

  • In about six years of activity in Ticino, we can boast of having played at the Conservatory of Lugano and Teatro Dimitri.
  • We represented three different original shows, the first of which was written and directed by David Jackson (Van der Graaf Generator).
  • Personally (Maurizio Rocca), I’m the composer, arranger and conductor of the ensemble.
  • In 2013 I won the competition «25 Years of Soundbeam», awarded by a jury of musicians and British experts, among them, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin).
