Georgia Symphony Orchestra's Sensory Friendly Concert with Francisco Vila

The Georgia Symphony's annual Sensory Friendly Concert returns to present great music in a sensory friendly environment. With limited seating and carefully crafted (but not watered down) selections of music, this performance is great for those that require a space free of the standard confines of a classical performance.

Attendees are able to move about, dance, sing in their seats (or change seats multiple times), wave arms in the air, and be themselves while enjoying a live classical music performance experience.

The GSO is pleased to welcome Ecuadorian cellist Francisco Vila as guest artist for this performance.
