Xenia Concerts 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.
The Mercer-Park Duo
Rachel Mercer – cello
Angela Park – piano
The programme will include works by Dvorak, Vaughan Williams, and Schumann.
