Chamberfest’s Adapted Concerts (formerly Sensory Friendly Concerts) are adaptive performances for those with sensory sensitivities, including autistic and neurodivergent kids and adults. Family and friends are welcomed into a concert experience that has special considerations like pre-concert visual aids, storytelling, and flexible spaces for movement, ensuring a comfortable environment for all to be creative and have fun with music. Everyone is welcome.

Finnish-Canadian soprano Emili Losier holds six higher education degrees in music, performance and arts management, and works as a performing soprano, researcher, educator and arts manager. She has won various awards for her work, including a Social Sciences and Research Council grant from the Government of Canada. On the opera stage ‘she is a nature’s child…touching the heart from beginning to end.’

Saskatchewan-born tenor Philip Klaassen began making his mark on the operatic stage with the Saskatoon Opera in Schools Tour in productions of The Magic Flute, The Brothers Grimm, and The Barber of Seville. He has since performed roles in productions of Die Zauberflote, Carmen, Don Giovanni, Le Villi, Gianni Schicchi, Cendrillon and Turn Of The Screw. Most recently he appeared as a featured soloist on the Windsor Symphony Orchestra’s new holiday album “Christmas, eh?”, released in December 2022.
