2023/24 Sensory Friendly Concerts
The Colorado Symphony believes strongly in access and inclusion and is committed to providing opportunities for everyone to enjoy the beauty of live, symphonic music through our Sensory Friendly program. Our concerts are specifically designed for people with conditions that might cause them to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome at concerts. Our 2023/24 season concerts feature collaborations with the Colorado Conservatory of Dance including students from their Dance Expressions program. Dance Expressions is an inclusive program with an adaptive curriculum which provides children of all abilities a therapeutic dance experience. Students are given the tools for a successful exploration of dance while being in a safe environment.
Sensory Friendly concert experiences are meant to be shared among students, family members, and caregivers. Complimentary fidget toys are available for all attendees and the concert experience includes a variety of accommodations such as house lights remaining on, reduced venue capacity to encourage movement, etc. These performances are also a great introduction to the symphony for little ones, as audiences are encouraged to dance along with this creative, interactive program!
