Connecting NBC 5 to the community we serve.
The My DSO Concert will last about an hour and will be performed without intermission. The performance will not vary from a traditional orchestra concert programmatically, but arrangements will be made to accommodate the individual needs of people with acute sensitivities. Fidgets and Eye Masks will be available thanks to the support of 29 Acres; Quiet Rooms will be set aside in case the music becomes overwhelming; the performance will be broadcast via television monitors on the lower level of the Meyerson; and house lights will be set to a brighter level. There will also be remarks from the stage to welcome the audience and introduce the music.
