Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are accessible performances by full orchestra, designed for people with additional needs and their families.

Overview

Relaxed Performances are accessible performances by full orchestra, designed for people with additional needs and their families.

We have worked in partnership with Autism NI and the Now Group to devise presented concerts which bring the joy of live orchestral music to everyone.

Ulster Orchestra relaxed performances are a safe and welcoming space for everyone to enjoy

From entry we were greeted with smiling faces. There was plenty of space for the kids to either take a seat or sit on the mats. The story started and then the music. I was blown away, such talent and understanding. I found myself becoming emotional for a number of reasons. Watching the children’s faces and reactions, walking around, making noises, stimming, spinning, flapping etc the enjoyment, acceptance and inclusivity it gave them and us all had me close to tears of joy. 

The first phase of the Relaxed Performances project was supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation
