Enjoy music in a sensory friendly environment with Jakob Mueller presented by Swallow Hill Music.

At a Sensory Friendly Concert, we maintain lower volumes and even lighting. We’ll have a calm room and fidget sensory items available.

What is a Sensory-Friendly Concert?

The Kennedy Center defines sensory friendly performances as being “designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families with children with autism or with other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities.”

In practical terms, that means the concert volume is lower (not loud), and lighting isn’t too dark or too bright (no strobing or quick changes). Attendees and their families can move around, dance, and sing along in a fun, judgment-free environment.

Elements of Our Sensory Friendly Concerts

  • Dim, in-the-middle lighting. Not too bright and not completely dark. Lights aren’t strobing or changing abruptly. This helps lessen light contrast sensitivities.
  • Medium or lower volume levels. This helps mediate abrupt or overall loud noises. This might include finger snaps instead of clapping because they create less noise.
  • Calm, flexible space outside the performance room is provided. This provides a break area so one could calm down if they get overwhelmed, or not worry if they’re too loud.
  • Fidget sensory items are provided.
  • Wider space between rows or aisles. This helps everyone maneuver in and out more easily.
