Fall Sensory-Friendly Concertin the Target Atrium
Sat Oct 21, 2023
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.
The Minnesota Orchestra’s Sensory-Friendly small ensemble concerts are inclusive experiences for patrons of all ages, including individuals with autism or sensory sensitivities.
- Musician information and concert program will be added in the weeks leading up to the concert.
Fidgets, noise-canceling headphones, quiet spaces and a pre-visit story are available at all Sensory-Friendly Concerts. 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.
