Marylhurst Women’s Chorale, directed by Megan Elliott
Portland Wind Symphony, directed by Pat Vandehey
Free. Donations to Marylhurst Music and the Portland Wind Symphony are gratefully accepted.
The Marylhurst Women’s Chorale partners with the Portland Wind Symphony to offer a Sensory Friendly Concert. Classical and popular works for choir and band will be performed in an environment that is comfortable and nonjudgmental. The lights are up in the performance hall, the volume is lower, and sound level is consistent. Audience members are free to talk and leave their seats.
New this year! Join the choir in a rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, standing alongside the choir or at your seat, your choice.
Marylhurst Music Therapy students will be on hand throughout the event to welcome and support audience members during the concert. Following the concert, the students will offer information about music therapy, while conducting a “musical instrument petting zoo” for children.
