Music for Autism is a family and child friendly 3-part interactive concert. For this concert, violinists Searmi Parks and Sarah Thornbird of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra performed. The first part of the show is the "Concert" in which the artists play a few selections. The audience is encouraged to get up and dance, sing, and interact with the music. Then it's time for the "Conducting" portion of the show where the audience helps lead the musicians by using their arms to conduct. And finally, the show ends with the "Percussion" portion in which everyone in the audience gets a percussion instrument and plays along with the performers.
This was an amazing experience to be a part of and I look forward to volunteering again in April when Music for Autism returns to The Help Group!
