Xenia: Vocalise

Xenia Concerts, with the Cecilia Quartet and Lawrence Wiliford, are specifically designed to be welcoming for children on the autism spectrum and their families; the concerts achieve this objective by eliminating many of the conventions associated with classical music performances including audience silence and stillness. Instead, Xenia Concerts welcome freedom of movement and conversational interaction between the audience and performers to help young audience members follow the musical storyline of a particular piece of music.

Families with children on the autism spectrum can register for priority admission to this concert through our partners at Autism Ontario. General admission is limited and will prioritize children with accompanying adults.
