Deaf and Hard of Hearing Events

The Richmond Symphony Union Bank & Trust LolliPops Series

 

The Richmond Symphony Union Bank & Trust LolliPops series has added an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter to the growing list of accommodations they offer during their one-hour, family-friendly performances. It’s true! In addition to being sensory-friendly, an ASL interpreter will be available at the pre-concert festival and also onstage during the concerts.

To celebrate this new opportunity, a special, discounted subscription for the last three LolliPops performances is now available directly through their Web site, but individual concert tickets are also available:

Subscriptionshttps://www.richmondsymphony.com/ticketing/subscriptions/2017-18-union-bank-trust-lollipops-subscription-2/ This special subscription is available to everyone in the community.

Individual Tickets: https://www.richmondsymphony.com/community/union-lollipops/

If your child or someone in your family is deaf or hard-of-hearing, please be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to explore classical music and storytelling!

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: To ensure the symphony ropes off enough seats for their deaf and hard-of-hearing ticket holders (up front near the interpreter), please type YES in the section asking if someone in your family would benefit from an ASL interpreter.
