There will be a free relaxed performance by Avenue Ensemble at The Venue, Leeds Conservatoire on Wednesday 14th February, 1.05pm – 2pm.
Avenue Ensemble is a shape-shifting, Leeds-based group of musicians. Determined to bring classical music to new and more diverse audiences, they can be often found performing in unusual venues and locations. Their programme will feature music by Felix Mendelssohn, Claude Debussy, Astor Piazzolla, plus a Valentine’s Day surprise for all hopeless romantics.
Approximately 50 minutes without interval.
Relaxed performances are for everyone. They are designed to especially welcome all who might benefit from a more relaxed environment, including people who are neurodivergent, have sensory and communication impairments, dementia, and learning disabilities.
During the concert, volume contrasts are softened, the lights stay up, and the door remains open. Audience members are welcome to leave and enter the auditorium as needed, move freely, and respond to music as they feel.
