Opus Nova is more than just chamber music concerts! We are striving to support our community and to bring music to people who do not get many opportunities to attend concerts and music events. Fort Worth Performances for Autism is the first community project of Opus Nova Chamber Music Series. It is created with the idea of bringing music concerts to autistic children. Parents of autistic children often feel hesitant to bring them to concerts due to the children’s difficulties with self-regulation and sensory stimuli. Fort Worth Performances for Autism (FWPA) was thus founded with the idea of bringing appropriate music concerts to autistic children. Performances organized by FWPA are no ordinary concerts and music events. Rather, they are interactive performances (IP), a special event that directly engages with the audience and makes them participants in the process. The performers talk between playing their pieces, and welcome singalong, clapping and more.
