Assistant General Secretary Naomi Pohl on The Musician Behind the Moment

Musicians’ Union Assistant General Secretary Naomi Pohl talks about The Musician Behind the Moment, on BBC Radio Ulster’s Classical Connections with John Toal.

“If you’re not someone who regularly goes to classical concerts, maybe you think that there isn’t a value in orchestral music for you.

"But I think what people don’t realise is that actually orchestras increasingly fulfil a social function aside from just performance.

"They’re also doing a lot of outreach work in care homes, dementia homes, schools, education environments, and they’re also performing on soundtracks that we all love...

These orchestral musicians are having a significant impact on people’s lives”
