CSU to host music recital for young people with autism

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  CSU's Schwob Music Preparatory Division will host its first sensory-friendly music recital for young people with autism or sensory processing sensitivities.

The recital will be held in RiverCenter's Legacy Hall on Saturday, Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. and will last about 40 minutes. 

Solo and ensemble music for violin, guitar, horn quartet, and more will be featured, performed by students from Columbus State University's Schwob School of Music. 

Before the recital, members of NAfME-C (National Association for Music Educators-Collegiate) will have an instrument petting zoo in the RiverCenter lobby for 30 minutes before and after the recital. Children will be able to learn about various musical instruments that they are encouraged to handle and try.

Audience members will be allowed to enter and exit the hall throughout the recital, and designated quiet areas will be located in the lobby. Performers will avoid higher dynamic levels, and pieces selected are of shorter length.

For people with autism and sensory processing sensitivities, attending concerts and recitals can be overwhelming. The combined stimuli of high-volume dynamics, applause, bright lights, and crowded seating can be too intense for some, and leaving the hall during a performance considered inappropriate. Sensory-friendly performances are one solution to that issue.

The performance is free and for all ages. Attire is casual. Flash photography is not allowed in or around the building. 

For more information, call the Schwob Music Prep office at (706) 641-5124 or visit their official website at this link.
