The upcoming ‘relaxed’ Prom for people with autism and learning disabilities has been tried out early in Cardiff by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
Sign language interpretation was provided on stage and there were chill-out areas in the hall for those who felt the need to stretch their legs.
Sounds like a terrific idea.
Conductor Grant Llewellyn said: ‘It’s just so invigorating, it’s so liberating. And I can’t speak for the players – but I will – I think they learn a tremendous amount.
‘I certainly have learnt about the nature of direct communication, and entertainment, and just unadulterated fun through music.’
The Prom is on July 29.
