Sensory Friendly

Saturday, April 15, 2023

Discover the different families of instruments of the orchestra and their unique sounds in this Sensory Friendly performance!

This event is designed especially for persons with sensory sensitivities and their families, and gives audience members the ability to fully experience orchestral music without any of the constraints of a standard performance.

During this 50 minute program, audience members are free to move about, dance, speak, sing, or vocalize. Sensory sensitive listeners and family members will delight in the discovery of an orchestral experience that invites and welcomes all to the world of classical music.

Up to 45min before or after each concert, experience a myriad of instruments first-hand in the lobby. Many instruments like small percussion are simple enough to tap or pick up & shake.  More complex instruments will have attendants to help them to strum, pluck, or bow themselves. People of any age or ability are welcome.  There is also a Quiet Room for those who need a break from the instrumental sounds!
