ACO 2023: Relaxed Performances
ABOUT ACO RELAXED PERFORMANCES
Sharing music with new audiences lies at the heart of everything we do. Presented with flexible seating, adjusted lighting and sound levels, and a quiet space to chill out, ACO Relaxed Performances welcome people on the autism spectrum, people with sensory sensitivities, people with disability and access needs, and parents and carers with babies in an informal, daytime experience.
ACO Relaxed performances are tailored to those for whom the traditional concert hall experience may be inaccessible, or who may not have seen our orchestra perform live before - we want to bring the music to you. Come along, respond to the music, make noise, be yourself and have fun!
In 2023, performance will feature a 50-minute selection of music from highlights in our national concert tour and other programs.
