Meet the Concertmaster of the Columbus Symphony, violinist Joanna Frankel, and hear her perform a portion of the Higdon Violin Concerto on today’s concert. Barber’s famous Adagio for Strings and several movements from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition will round out the afternoon.
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.
