Tom Chapin -  A Sensory Friendly Concert
Join us at The Latchis Theatre at 1:00 pm for a Sensory Friendly Concert by Tom Chapin, a Grammy Award-winning American musician, entertainer, singer-songwriter and storyteller. Register at The River Garden from 11-12:30 am to receive your free tickets to the show! This concert is for all ages and ability levels, but address the unique needs of those who experience sensory overload at traditional concerts. An environment is created where children on the Autism Spectrum or with learning disabilities can feel at ease and fit in. The volume is turned down, the lights are turned up, and standing and dancing are encouraged.
