Heart to Heart Orchestra, established in 2006, is a symphony orchestra comprised of musicians with developmental disabilities. Initially founded to provide music education opportunities to young people with developmental disabilities and to increase access to music, the orchestra has been successfully performing for the ten years to improve social understanding for people with disabilities.
