We attended our first Sensory Concert today & loved it. To be able to enjoy live classical music as a family was magical and something we thought we may never be able to do. For Ollie to be able to be himself in such an inclusive environment was wonderful. This is a beautiful concept and we look forward to attending more concerts in the future.Warrick Tandy
Thank you for today’s lovely concert. Great repertoire, excellent musicians and a very relaxed ambiance. Please organise some more concerts in Melbourne.Jeffrey Segal
Just had an amazing morning here with my autistic daughter! The musicians were top notch, the space was beautiful and light, and absolutely every part of it was designed to be accessible for autistic kids. My daughter, J, watched the first part of the concert on a crash mat with a fluffy blanket and a velvet cushion (sensory heaven for her). There was an OT there who bought J playdough when she wanted to focus but was having trouble. J watched the second part of the concert from outside the big window running and laughing in time with the music. I couldn’t be happier!Shannon Muriel
It’s hard enough keeping young children without special needs settled during performances, so what was really impressive about the concert was to see an environment where parents were able to relax and their children were able to respond to the music in their own way. It was an inclusive environment, with beautiful violin, cello and piano performances. I would certainly love to see more of this happen in the Mountains.Susan Templeman
