AZURE, A SENSORY FRIENDLY CONCERTnTuesday, November 13 2018 7:00pm nUniversity of MarylandnDance Theatre @ The Clarice Performing Arts CenternAzure is a unique performance experience, specifically for people with cognitive disabilities of all ages and walks of life, and those close to that community. Azure is a joyful event, free of judgment and traditional concert hall norms, where the whole family can enjoy a high-quality concert experience. We create a sensory-friendly space where all can interact with the music in any way they feel – movement, vocalizations, and reactions of all types are welcome. INVOKE, a string quartet that plays music of many forms, curates a program and venue at a high artistic level that meets the needs of those with cognitive disabilities. Move or dance in any direction! The Clarice provides a suitable space with a wide array of fun, tactile fidgets to provide a sensory outlet and to help keep the audience engaged. Non-fluorescent lighting enhances the experience; earplugs are also available on request. Free, but tickets are required for admission. For registration information and/or questions, contact Jane Hirshberg at janeh22@umd.edu or 301.405.8172 Presented in partnership with the University of Maryland and the University of Maryland Autism Research Consortium.
