Winter Sensory-Friendly Concert

in the Target Atrium

Tue Feb 13, 2024

Orchestra Hall

~50 minutes with no intermission

Join us for an engaging and interactive concert experience in a relaxed environment where all audience members are welcome to be who they are while enjoying music with family and friends. This concert takes place in the Target Atrium, where patrons can see and hear the instruments up close and ask questions in a more intimate setting. Hosted by Lyndie Walker, MT-BC from Toneworks Music Therapy Services, this program features a Minnesota Orchestra musician and talented guest artists from the community.

  1. The Minnesota Orchestra’s Sensory-Friendly small ensemble concerts are inclusive experiences for patrons of all ages, including individuals with autism or sensory sensitivities.
  2. This program features Kathryn Nettleman.
  3. Fidgets, noise-canceling headphones and quiet spaces are available at all Sensory-Friendly Concerts. A pre-visit story and program are also available to help you prepare for the event; scroll down the page for these resources. Stand-alone chairs provide for flexible seating and open space is available for those who wish to sit on the floor or move around the room.
