ACCESS AND EDUCATION

LET’S MAKE MUSIC TOGETHER

Join us for our award-winning series of relaxed and accessible concerts in partnership with the IHC Foundation. These performances focus on inclusion, participation and discovery opportunities for diverse audiences.

Participation is a big part of these events; trust-building and learning songs in accompanying workshops prior to the concerts lead to a higher level of participation and an overall more relaxed environment. These are relaxed performances – everybody is encouraged to move around, vocalise and express themselves as they wish.

ACCESSIBILITY

Large Print Programmes are available for subscription concerts at $3 each. Purchase them in advance by placing an order on your booking form.

E-reader compatible programme notes are also available online prior to the concert.

Access information for each of our venues is available online. Please let us know of any assistance you may need when you book your subscription.

AUDIO DESCRIPTION

For blind and low vision patrons.

At our described concerts a trained audio describer will provide a live description of the visual elements of performance during pauses in the music. The narration is transmitted to audience members who are wearing an earpiece, with the earpiece attached to a pocket-sized radio receiver. A touch tour prior to the concert will enable you to fully appreciate and visualise the stage setting, instruments and their placement on stage in relation to each other.
