Canada Water Theatre presents Comfortable Classical

Canada Water Theatre

Comfortable Classical: Relaxed Concerts with City of London Sinfonia

CLS returns with two relaxed, lunchtime performances curated and directed by company musicians around the theme of birdsong and nature.

Comfortable Classical invites anyone and everyone, from young children to older adults, to experience orchestral music. In these short lunchtime concerts, there will be introductions from the musicians and classical music inspired by nature and birdsong. We also encourage other relaxation activities while you listen such as drawing, colouring and knitting.

Relaxed performances aim to create an environment for everyone, including people with autism, dementia and sensory impairments. Audience members can pop in and out of the performance space or spend some time in a designated quiet area when they need to.

Get comfy. Listen to classical music. Enjoy Comfortable Classical.
