Chords for Kids, presented by North Central College Concert Winds, is a classical recital geared specifically for children with autism. The student-musicians do not mind wiggly, talkative children, and gear their music appropriately. They also have the opportunity to learn about children with disabilities. The lights in the auditorium are adjusted for children with sensory integration issues and the snacks provided are gluten- and casein-free. Parents and siblings are welcome; the admission is free.

As co-founder Susan Maynes says, “What we try to do on our end is to create a very understanding and safe environment for kids to come and learn what it’s like to be at a concert. We have kids dancing in the aisles, kids bopping up and down in their seats and kids singing or humming along.”
