The Accessible Concert Hall Project is a paid training opportunity for Peabody students and alumni to practice crafting and delivering an online, interactive, and engaging concert program that’s accessible to neurotypical and neurodivergent children and their families. The musical content of this concert program will be curated from pre-recorded Peabody performances, and Peabody students will work with Music Therapist, Kerry Devlin, to learn how to include a range of sensory and motor accommodations in their programming.
Selected participants will meet virtually with Kerry Devlin to learn best practices in accessible program delivery and to develop and present the Accessible Concert Hall Project online to a nationwide audience. Participants will receive a $200 stipend at the conclusion of all activities.
As this project is not a performance opportunity, but rather an engagement project, we especially invite non-performance majors such as recording arts, music for new media, composers, conductors, and music education students to apply.
Accessible Concert Hall Project 2021 application deadline is February 22, 2021, with an anticipated start date of March 1 and a final performance the week of April 26. Applications can be found here.
