Pittsburgh, PA 15241

The December 11 performance will be customized for those with autism spectrum disorders or who have disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. The concert length will be 60 minutes without an intermission, and the focus will be on creating a welcoming environment that includes a relaxing of traditional “concert rules” leaving patrons free to get up, make noise (talk, clap, sing!), move around, and leave/return to the concert space as desired. The use of iPads and other electronics will be allowed along with sensory fidget toys and other items that will be available for use during the performance. Quiet spaces will be available should patrons need a break.

Pre-concert activities will begin at 1:30pm. Attendees can come at any time during the hour before the performance to engage in several activities aimed at exploring your musical voice and body, and goodie bags with various materials you can use and take home like fidgets!
