Free Concert Will Be Accessible to All
The ‘Dreamers and Heroes’ concert, a fully accessible concert for music-lovers of all ages and abilities, will be presented at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 18 in the Kent Concert Hall on the Utah State University campus. Admission is free.
“There is nothing like hearing a live concert to energize the soul,” said Bryce Fifield, director of Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities. “Unfortunately, people with disabilities and their family members often don’t get the chance to attend live concerts. Sometimes the music is boring, goes too long, has ‘too many notes,’ or is too expensive. Sadly, many with disabilities often don’t feel welcome at these events.”
The American Festival Chorus and Orchestra is partnering with the Autism Council of Utah, and Utah State University’s Caine School of the Arts and Center for Persons with Disabilities to deliver the concert. This performance is being designed especially for audience members with disabilities. The music will draw from the Chorus’ most popular performances of the past several years. The selections will be fun, entertaining, and full of energy and excitement.
