Addicts’ Symphony – The Recovered Drug Abusers’ Orchestra (Full Documentary) | Only Human
Composer and musician James McConnel, a recovered alcoholic himself, examines music’s transformative power, as he unites ten classical musicians whose lives have all been severely affected by various addictions, ranging from abuse of alcohol to heavy drugs.
In this touching documentary, we follow the orchestra and learn about the musicians’ individual journeys as recovered addicts.
Among the personal stories, the initiator and composer James McConnel carries with him perhaps the most tragic story of them all: he lost his then only 18-year-old son to a heroin overdose and is now working to inspire and change the lives of addicts through music.
Follow James McConnel and the orchestra’s intense work towards a spectacular one-off performance with the London Symphony Orchestra.
