What We Do
"To foster community for people with autism by presenting
interactive concerts in a welcoming environment."
Azure Pittsburgh recognizes that autism and related challenges can present barriers to attendance and engagement in a formal concert setting. We program the highest quality artists while taking care to consider and remove as many barriers as possible to create a sensory-friendly environment
where all people are accepted, embraced, and celebrated.
At an Azure concert, if you want to sing, dance, vocalize, or clap, you're welcome to do so,
and if you need a break, there's always a designated quiet space for you.
Our concerts are a place for connecting with each other through music.
ALL BEHAVIORS WELCOME!
We are enthusiastic artists and volunteers committed to producing an all-behaviors-welcome concert series inspired by Azure Concerts founder Stephen Prutsman. Our concert season strives to provide opportunities for growth, connection, and education for families in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
Azure Family Concerts Pittsburgh is a program of Autism-Pittsburgh.
We would not exist without the generous support of Autism-Pittsburgh. Thanks also to Maria Lambros of Azure Baltimore and Azure Founder, Stephen Prutsman whose help and mentorship makes this series possible.
