About the event
“My son looks forward to these events almost as much as he looks forward to Santa (and he spends much of the year waiting for Santa)! They have really helped him grow fond of classical music.”
With the help of the International Cseperedő Foundation, Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra have, in recent years, developed a unique concert format that provides a safe and fun environment for autistic children and their families alike. Before the concerts, we send some helpful materials to the families so that they can prepare for the visual and audio effects and make sure the children do not encounter anything unexpected during the concert. By the time they enter the orchestra’s rehearsal hall, they will already be familiar with the musicians’ faces as well as their instruments. We also offer a hand to guide them during the concerts: story-like explanations and colourful visual tools help the little ones follow the music.
