Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra has something special up its sleeve this year. The season-opening weekend will include a sensory-friendly performance of NFSO’s opening night Take Flight concert. This performance on Saturday, September 28 at 10 a.m. will serve audience members of all ages.
In order to accommodate individuals with sensory sensitivity, the NFSO will play the concert at half-volume and will keep the lights on so that the audience is not sitting in the dark. Manipulatives such as fidget toys will be available along with other surprises in the lobby before the concert. Audience members can also bring pillows, blankets, toys or any support objects that make them feel comfortable to enjoy a live concert.
