Sensory Music Concert

February 21, 2022

Performed by acclaimed musicians, you will experience “Opera House” standard performances up close and personal!

Sensory Concerts® is the brainchild of Grace Kim: a concert pianist and a mother with a fierce determination to make quality music accessible to all, without fear of social judgement. When her oldest son was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism, she noticed there was a lack of live high-quality concert opportunities for families with sensory and additional needs, commonly associated with Autism, ADHD, physical and intellectual disabilities.

In 2017, she piloted her first Sensory Concerts® – with small numbers, various sensory-friendly seating options, retreat space, freedom of movement, and onsite therapist support. The music is designed to calm the senses and contain elements that are known to be attractive to those on the Autism spectrum.

The concerts are designed to satisfy both first-timers and seasoned concert goers alike, for all ages.

Since the successful pilot concert, the demand for Sensory Concerts® has been growing. Presenting throughout regional and metropolitan NSW, Melbourne, and Adelaide, they produced their first CD thanks to the support of the ING Dreamstarter crowdfunding campaign.
