Luis Biava, conductor
Did you know there are many musical compositions written about our great state of Ohio? Hearing the New Albany Symphony perform Carmen Ohio, Beautiful Ohio, an excerpt from Bernstein’s Wonderful Town “Ohio” and selections from Copland’s Old American Songs will have you singing along and proud to be a Buckeye! O-H-I-O!
About Sensory Friendly Events
Our sensory freindly performances are designed for those on the autism spectrum, our friends in the dementia/Alzheimer’s community, or for those audience members needing a more relaxed concert experience. Performances are never longer than an hour and include pre-concert lobby activities. During these concerts, audience members can feel free to talk, and BYO reinforcements and motivational systems. House lights will be turned on but dimmed, and “chill-out” zones, will be available in the lobby for those needing a break. All NASO ushers and volunteers will receive specific training to accommodate our audience.
*This year, due to COVID19, tickets must be purchased in advance and seating will be general admission but socially distanced. We ask that anyone over the age of 2 please wear a face mask into the hall and at your seat if you are able. We understand face masks can be difficult for some of our friends. If a child will tolerate a mask we encourage them to wear one, however we recognize that with this unique audience, a mask might not be an option and we will be understanding of each situation. Please use your best judgement and help us keep everyone safe this season by doing at-home health checks before arriving to the concert. We are limiting the hall to 118 audience members allowing us to keep plenty of distance and keep everyone as safe as possible.
