Audio-described concert

Posted on 15 May 2017 by Cristina Maldonado

A trained audio describer delivers the program relayed via an in-house receiver to an earpiece. The audio description seeks to enhance the concert-going experience for audience members who are blind or have a low vision through describing the movements and actions of the orchestra as well as relating the visual elements of the concert.


Audio-described concert tickets for this performance have been discounted and are available to patrons who are blind or have low vision and their companion only.
