The Minnesota Orchestra is committed to increasing access to the symphonic art form by providing concert experiences in an inclusive environment. We offer Sensory-Friendly and Relaxed Family Concerts for audiences of all ages and abilities, including individuals on the autism spectrum and those with sensory sensitivities. Each concert takes place in a relaxed environment where audience members are welcome to be who they are and enjoy music together with family and friends.
Our Sensory-Friendly Concerts feature individual musicians or small ensembles in the Target Atrium at Orchestra Hall. Relaxed Family Concerts feature the full orchestra in the main auditorium.
