Now in its second year, we’re thrilled to announce the return of RNCM Disability Week this Spring in memory of composer Lucy Hale.

The week features events exclusively by disabled, d/Deaf and neurodivergent artists, creatives, and researchers. From talks to performances, workshops, and demos, we’d love for you to join us as we explore music-making at the forefront of disability arts.

Discover new, bespoke and unusual instruments that are being used to meet access needs in this unique concert. AMI stands for ‘Accessible Musical Instruments’, and this concert celebrates the upcoming launch of composer Megan Steinberg’s debut album ami études. An ‘étude’ [French: ‘study’] was historically composed to teach the unique capabilities of an instrument to its students. They are usually short and sweet, exploring a different aspect of the instrument in depth and detail.

These new pieces will explore the sounds and intricacies of accessible musical instruments for disabled and neurodivergent artists.
