Special Programs for People with Disabilities
Chamber music programs for people with autism
Following a successful pilot, the NJSO formally launched its Autism Community Initiative in the 2012–13 season. The Autism Community Initiative is a series of chamber music programs specifically designed to address the developmental needs of children and adults with autism while advancing the Orchestra’s commitment to more meaningful and sustained engagement with its communities. This year, the program will collaborate with six program partners in two counties to serve more than 1,000 youth and adults with autism.
The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra gratefully acknowledges The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey and Johnson & Johnson for their generous support of this program.
Complimentary tickets for the visually impaired
Through a grant received from the Jorgensen Trust, the NJSO offers free tickets to select concerts. For more information, call 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476), and press option 3 for Patron Services.
