Get truly “inside the orchestra” by sitting on the floor, surrounded by a 14 piece professional orchestra. The conductor engages with participants throughout the performance, asking questions and teaching them about the music as it is playing around them. This program gives the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Attendees are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. You’ll also be introduced to instrument “families” and can take a closer look at the instruments and ask questions of the musicians after the concert has concluded. The experience is one-of-a-kind!

SF Family Tree is a series designed to present performances in a relaxed, sensory-friendly way. Performers will modify shows to ensure there are no startling noises or visually over-stimulating components. Our team keeps sound levels lower than normal and keeps the lights in the audience higher than normal, ensuring audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be (there is always a "safe room" available) and are asked to wave hands rather than clapping.
