Autism-Friendly Interactive Concert Featuring U of I Wind Orchestra

4/10/2012  9:00 am

This free concert is being held Sunday, April 29, 2012 from 3-4 pm in the Foellinger Great Hall at Krannert Center.  The concert, sponsored in cooperation with The Autism Program, is specifically targeted for families, children, and adults who experience Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Audience members will be able to move around during the concert. 

Dr. Linda R. Moorehouse, who directs the orchestra says, "This is a very special concert.  Hardly any families are able to attend live concerts due to some of the behaviors their children may exhibit in public.  There will be no judgement and no criticism...just a warm and friendly environment for all."
