Join the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra for our first ever Sensory Friendly concert experience!

Sensory-friendly concerts are designed for people of any age on the autism spectrum or with a sensory sensitivity and their families.  We’ll enjoy the ultimate spring break get-away – through music! Visit Hollywood with “Hedwig’s Theme” from Harry Potter, get a taste of New Orleans with the International Dixieland Jamboree, dance along to the Conga del Fuego Nuevo in Mexico, experience Orlando (and Arendelle) with Selections from Frozen, and more!


Sensory Friendly Concert Modifications:

  • Dimmed house lights remain on during performance
  • On stage hosts will prepare and guide audience through concert
  • Flexible seating and relaxed house rules
  • Available sensory kits and noise-reduction headphones
  • Free activity bags including fidgets
  • Designated quiet areas
  • Family-friendly food concessions
  • Trained MSO Ambassadors on site to assist patrons
  • Flexible refund policy if patrons are unable to attend

Seating for family concerts is general admission and is on a first come, first served basis.

Discounted group rates available! Please call Luther Gray at 414-226-7840.
