EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH

2017-2018 SEASON
SATURDAY AT THE SYMPHONY CONCERTS 
Presented by PNC Arts Alive
Our sensory-friendly series is back this year! These concerts are designed for those on the autism spectrum, our friends in the dementia/Alzheimer’s community, or for those audience members needing a more relaxed concert experience. Performances are never longer than an hour, include pre-concert lobby activities, and tickets are just $8 general admission seating at the door including all fees!

October 14, 2017, 11:30 a.m. JUST DANCE
December 16, 2017, 11:30 a.m. SANTA AND THE SYMPHONY
March 10, 2018, 11:30 a.m. CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS

During these concerts, audience members can feel free to move around, talk and BYO reinforcements and motivational systems. House lights will be turned on but dimmed, and "chill-out" zones, complete with live-streaming monitors, will be available in the lobby for those needing a break. Sign language interpreters will be on hand, and all NASO ushers and volunteers will receive specific training to accommodate our audience. Prior to concert day, attendees will be able to download our "What to Expect at the Concert" Story Board from our website.

BENEFITS OF A COMMUNITY ORCHESTRA

Audience Connection:  Seeing familiar faces on stage breaks the “high brow” barrier associated with going to the symphony.  As the professional core of NASO becomes familiar, we hope to inspire our audiences to go to the downtown theaters to hear them in their professional setting.

Programming designed for the community:  Through competitions, NASO will give local composers the opportunity to compose for the Symphony and student musicians the opportunity to appear as soloists.  We can program music to supplement the curriculum in the New Albany schools and consider requests from the community.  We will feature guest artists with ties to Columbus.

Valuable experiences for young musicians:  Sitting next to seasoned players in a formal orchestra setting is a prestigious and invaluable learning experience.
 
Semi-professional level of performance:  A community orchestra provides adults who enjoy music as a hobby the opportunity to perform.
