What is Azure?

Azure is a unique performance experience, specifically for people with cognitive disabilities of all ages and walks of life, and those close to that community. 

How is Azure different?

Azure is a joyful event, free of judgement and traditional concert hall norms, where the whole family can enjoy a high-quality concert experience. We create a sensory-friendly space where all can interact with the music in any way they feel - movement, vocalizations, and reactions of all types are welcome.

How does INVOKE create this experience?

INVOKE, a string quartet that plays music of many forms, curates a program and venue at a high artistic level that meets the needs of those with cognitive disabilities. Move or dance in any direction! The Clarice provides a suitable surface and plenty of space. There will be a wide array of fun tactile fidgets (feather boas, stress balls, etc.) to provide relief and to help keep the audience engaged and excited. Attractive non-fluorescent lighting enhances the experience and eliminates the buzzing/humming of traditional fluorescent lighting. Earplugs are also available on request.
