Delivered as part of BSO Participate’s Resonate strand of work, the BSO’s relaxed concerts have been specifically adapted for concert-goers with autistic spectrum conditions, those with sensory, communication or learning difficulties and anyone who would benefit from a less formal environment. Resonate works to promote health and well-being, social inclusion and social cohesion within local communities, using the power of music to transform lives. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and audience members are free to leave and re-enter the concert hall at any point during the performance, also making the concert ideal for families with young children. There will also be a Chill Out area where space is made for anyone needing a bit of quiet time before or during the performance.
“My eldest son has autism and is unable to attend a traditional concert. My younger son plays the violin and this is the only opportunity we have had to participate in such an event together as a family.”
