The 2 p.m. concert is a sensory-friendly performance.
Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families, including those with children with autism or other sensory sensitivities. If you order these performances and do not require these Accessibility accommodations, your family is still very much welcome to attend.

Come early for a Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo"
Starting one hour before each concert, hands-on activities let children get up close with the instruments they'll see played on the stage.
