Sensory Friendly for the Family
The Georgia Symphony Orchestra is proud to present its annual Sensory Friendly Concert series. Beginning in 2015, these events are designed especially for persons with sensory sensitivities and their families. As a component of the GSO’s educational and outreach programs, these concerts give audience members the ability to fully experience orchestral music without any of the constraints of a standard performance.
During these 50 minute programs, audience members are free to move about, dance, speak, sing, or vocalize. Sensory sensitive listeners and family members will delight in the discovery of orchestral experiences that invite 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 noise!”
