Dallas Symphony Orchestra to perform Free concert

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra and LaunchAbility invite you to join us for My DSO Concert on April 10, 2016. This is a FREE concert specially designed for children and adults on the autism spectrum and with developmental disabilities and their families, friends and caregivers.

My DSO Concert will not vary from a traditional orchestra concert programmatically, but arrangements will be made to accommodate the individual needs of people with acute sensitivities. “Quiet rooms” will be set aside in case the music becomes overwhelming. House lights will be set to a brighter level. There will be remarks from the stage to welcome the audience and introduce the music. My DSO Concert is approximately one hour in length with no intermission. Before the performance, patrons will be able to interact with musical instruments at an instrument petting zoo and learn more about resources in Dallas for families and individuals with developmental disabilities.

Please go to www.mydso.com/mydsoconcert and at checkout use launch to access tickets specifically set aside for this event. You will have to go through the checkout process but the charge will be $0.00 (FREE). Or call 214-TIX-4DSO if special seating arrangements need to be made or you require handicapped accessible seating.
