Sensory Concerts® is a series of high quality classical music concerts for children and adults with sensory/special needs. People with sensory needs are easily overwhelmed by crowd, noise, light, smell, and touch. Young children are especially sensitive to their surroundings, and tend to react in certain ways to cope, such as moving, or making noise. That’s why families with children tend to shy away from traditional concerts.

Sensory Concerts® differs from the traditional concert expectations, with a more relaxed atmosphere, with small numbers, various seating options, retreat space, and on-site therapist support.

Sensory Concerts® brings people together who may feel socially isolated due to their challenges, to have equal access to quality music without fear of judgement. It's not only the audience that benefits. It is absolutely heartwarming and inspiring for the musicians, to see such amazing reactions and responses to their music!
