Sensory Concerts®

Sensory Concert audience Glenbrook

Have you ever wanted to attend a concert but were too worried about being judged by others or shushed, or felt that it’s just too overwhelming?

We understand.

Sensory Concerts® are different to traditional classical concerts where you are expected to sit still and keep quiet for the whole performance.

At Sensory Concerts®, audience numbers are small, and our patrons are free to roam, vocalise, or retreat as needed.

You can relax on a crash mat, cushion or any seating of your choice and have an up-close-and-personal experience of enjoying performances by some of the most acclaimed professional musicians.

The music is programmed to engage, interact, and calm your senses.

We also have experienced therapists on site to support if needed.

The combined expertise of our Allied Health Professionals with performances by highly acclaimed professional musicians is what makes our Sensory Concerts® such a unique experience.

Sensory Concerts® are not just concerts: they are genuine options for people who otherwise cannot attend a live concert.

Sensory Concerts® are pioneers in providing equal access to high-quality music in Australia.

It is a wonderfully safe environment where you can spend quality time with the whole family!

Sensory Concerts® are specially designed for children and adults with sensory or special needs including:

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Sensory processing disorder
  • Physical disabilities
  • Intellectual disabilities

Venues are specially modified to minimise sensory stimulus such as noise, light, crowds, and lighting.

The music is programmed to contain elements that are attractive to people on the Autism spectrum.
