Relaxed Concerts by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra

The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) is excited to announce a new series of sensory-friendly, relaxed concerts, which are designed with accessibility in mind.

The ASO is committed to offering exceptional musical experiences that are accessible to all South Australians. The new initiative will see the development, commissioning and performance of a new concert for relaxed audiences, as well as designing a holistic experience through foyer and venue design elements and pre-concert venue wayfinding and communications.

Relaxed performances are created with accessibility in mind, designed to make artistic experiences and spaces more welcoming and comfortable for neuro-diverse audience members, anyone on the autism spectrum, and people with sensory and/or communication disorders or learning disabilities.

With elements such as adjusted lighting and sound, and sensory friendly break-out spaces, many children and their families will be able to enjoy a live concert for the very first time.


First Relaxed Concert:

Milli, Jack and the Dancing Cat | Saturday 23 October 2021 – 10am 

Presented by Susan Ferguson, this first relaxed concert will feature a brand new work by emerging South Australian composer, Rachel Bruerville, based on the Australian children’s book Milli, Jack and the Dancing Cat by Stephen Michael King, an author who has lived experience of disability.
