We’re back again to family concert summer reading. At Strings, I love the arts and I love reading. Therefore, it made perfect sense to partner with the librarians at the Bud Werner Memorial Library to enrich the summer experiences for everyone in town! C Street Brass headlines our next concert. This concert is extra-special because it is our first-ever sensory-friendly concert at Strings. That means this show has been specifically designed for people with sensory processing disorders, like autism. Small but significant accommodations are made to make this concert experience an enjoyable and relaxed experience for everyone.
C Street Brass is an amazing brass quintet, and they hail from Pittsburgh. This is their fourth summer in Steamboat! For those of you unfamiliar with brass instruments, or if your children are unsure of the strange sliding pipes, check out these books below.
