2024 TCAF: Midsummer Concert- Relaxed Performance

2024-07-06 - 2024-07-07

This concert is open to everyone!
Audiences don’t need to hold their breath or sit stiffly.
Those uncomfortable sitting for long periods can freely enter and exit the seating area at any time.
And there’s no need to apologize for making any involuntary sounds.

Relaxed Performance is a special event that celebrates artistic inclusivity, welcoming audiences with various physical needs to come and enjoy the music. Anyone hesitant about entering the concert hall due to various concerns can now relax and enjoy the performance without worrying about others’ opinions.
This time, the Evergreen Symphony Orchestra presents one of Mozart’s most significant works, Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, KV 550, composed in the summer of 1788. Schubert once remarked that one could hear the sound of angels in this symphony. We invite you to the Globe Playhouse to experience this masterpiece up close.
Performance piece: Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, KV 550
Audiences can experience the performance in a relaxed atmosphere, with the freedom to leave and return to their seats as needed.
