On Saturday, June 25, 2016, the PSO is presenting a Sensory-Friendly performance entitled "Heroes and Inspirations." They are planning several pre-performance activities, including a resource fair to help discover many of the accessible recreational activities in the Pittsburgh Region. This performance is unique in that the house lights are left partially on, ear-plugs and fidgets are available to guests, and several other modifications to a typical performance that should help to make the overall experience of going to the symphony more enjoyable for those with sensory-related needs. To read more about this exciting event and to access the pre-performance videos and Spotify links, please click the button below. It will take you directly to the PSO's website where you can read more about the event, find out how to submit original artwork for the event, and purchase tickets should you choose to do so. I am in no way encouraging anyone to go or to spend money, and I am not receiving anything from the PSO to spread the word. I just really believe we are very fortunate to have a world-class orchestra here in Pittsburgh that is sensitive to the needs of all of its patrons and see this as a terrific opportunity for those who may otherwise not attend a performance to be able to do so.
