Utah Symphony – Utah Opera Education – Events for Individuals with Special Needs

January 24, 2013
7:00 pmto10:00 pm

The Utah Symphony | Utah Opera offers an annual concert for children of all ages with special needs and their families. We present this concert because we know that many families cannot attend cultural events together because their special needs child acts in distracting ways. We feature our Opera Resident Artists with the Utah Symphony on the Capitol Theater Stage in a special concert where everyone understands the difficulty of keeping these family members quiet in their seats. This concert is FREE but registration is required.

Dear Senator/Representative Doe,

I am writing to you from Autism Street. I have a _______ [child, friend, student, cousin, grandchild, etc] that lives with autism. I love them very much. The unusual routine and hustle of the holidays can be very hard on a person with autism. As you celebrate this season of giving, please hold a place in your heart for those affected by this disability. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Sincerely,

Jane Constituent
