Join our orchestra musicians for several family-friendly favorites, including a Star Wars medley and Nathaniel Stookey’s The Composer Is Dead for narrator (Ian Judge) and orchestra—a musical whodunnit with text by Lemony Snicket.
To appeal to a diverse audience of children (including those on the autism spectrum), this concert will contain sensory-friendly elements—including reduced lighting, and parents are welcome to bring anything (coloring books, tactile objects, etc.) that would help their children enjoy an hour of music. A “quiet room” will be available for those who need it, and attendees may dance in the aisles or use noise-reducing headphones if they choose. Braille programs will also be available.
The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra thanks the Massachusetts Cultural Council for supporting our 2021-22 season. In addition, the CSO is grateful to the Cambridge Community Foundation for its contributions to making this concert possible.
