This hour-long musical extravaganza will inspire all your senses – including real-life whale imagery and sounds, a stage full of percussion instruments and a few surprises by your New Albany Symphony Orchestra friends. The musical selections you will hear on today’s concert include excerpts from Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony, a new commission piece by composer Adam Roberts and Hovhannes’s And God Created Whales.

About Sensory Friendly Events

Our sensory friendly performances are designed for those on the autism spectrum, our friends in the dementia/Alzheimer’s community, families with young children, or for anyone needing a more relaxed concert experience. During these concerts, audience members can feel free to move around, talk, and BYO reinforcements and motivational systems. House lights will be turned on but dimmed, family restrooms are provided, and “chill-out” zones will be available in the lobby for those needing a break. All NASO ushers and volunteers receive specific training to accommodate our audience. Performances are never longer than one hour and include pre-concert lobby activities.
