Our first livestream concert!

Although nothing replaces a face-to-face live concert, these never-ending lockdowns has prompted us to find another way to connect with you until we can see each other again.

We are grateful to the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall for making this possible.

We will be live-streaming on 10.30am, Sunday 22 August, to your ultimate comfort space ā€¦ your lounge rooms!

Presenting our most popular program, join our creative director Grace Kim with cellist Teije Hylkema and Kees Boersma on the double bass playing your favourites from Flight of the Bumblebee to the Theme from Mission Impossible!
šŸ˜Ž
At only $24 per device, you can enjoy with the whole family while supporting the artists who are facing challenging times during this lockdown. All ticket holders have 72 hour access.

Grab your tix here!

If you know anyone who will benefit from our concert, why not gift them a ticket? Gift vouchers are available on the MDCH website.

We would love you to spread the word far and wideā€¦  and we canā€™t wait to ā€œseeā€ you!!

 

Sensory ConcertsĀ®

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 ConcertsĀ® are pioneers in providing equal access to high-quality music in Australia.
 
Our concerts are different to traditional classical concerts where you are expected to sit still and keep quiet for the whole performance.
 
At Sensory ConcertsĀ®, 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, with 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 ConcertsĀ® such a unique experience.
 
Not just a token gesture, Sensory ConcertsĀ® are a genuine option for people who otherwise cannot attend a live concert.
 
It is a wonderfully safe environment where you can spend quality time with the whole family!

Sensory ConcertsĀ® 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.
