My DSO Concert
March 3 | 2018
The My DSO Concert is a free concert specially designed for children and adults on the autism spectrum and with developmental disabilities and their families, friends and caregivers.
My DSO Concert is presented in partnership with area organizations, including:
Autism Treatment Center

The McDermott Scholars at the University of Texas at Dallas
Mosaic Residential Homes

The Warren Center
Tickets to My DSO Concert are FREE, however, seats must be reserved. Patrons may reserve up to four tickets.
My DSO Concert will not vary from a traditional orchestra concert programmatically, but arrangements will be made to accommodate the individual needs of people with acute sensitivities. “Quiet rooms” will be set aside in case the music becomes overwhelming. House lights will be set to a brighter level. There will be remarks from the stage to welcome the audience and introduce the music. My DSO Concert is approximately one hour in length with no intermission. Before the performance, patrons will be able to interact with musical instruments at an instrument petting zoo and learn more about resources in Dallas for families and individuals with developmental disabilities.
