PIXAR IN CONCERT: A RELAXED AND AUTISM FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE IN MELBOURNE
Music education is for me one of the most beautiful things that we can give our children. We have featured in the past different ideas to introduce classical music to children (from Opera to classical concerts for families in Milano, London or Barcelona). Today I am really pleased to recommend you PIXAR IN CONCERT, a relaxed, fun and autism-friendly concert organized by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO).
PIXAR in concert will take place on 8th April at the Art Centre Melbourne (Hamer Hall). It features animated Pixar favorites on the big screen accompanied by music played live by musicians of this extraordinary Australian orchestra.
Visually stunning, in high-definition, this multi-media family show includes montages of memorable clips from Pixar’s most popular films: Cars, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Ratatouille, A Bug’s Life, Monsters Inc. and Brave.
The MSO will bring to life the Pixar characters that we all love with Grammy and Academy Award-winning scores by Randy Newman, Patrick Doyle, Thomas Newman and Michael Giacchino.
But what makes this performance really amazing is that it will take place in a safe and relaxed environment for families and children with autism, with various elements adapted to reduce the possibility of anxiety and discomfort: trained staff, relaxed attitude towards noise and movement, open door policy during the concert, soft lighting and sound levels, chill out spaces located outside….etc.
They have really thought of all the details so that this will be a fun and emotional experience for the whole audience. They have even designed a visual story with complete information so that the audience can know what to expect.
If you are in the area (lucky you!) don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy Pixar in Concert!
