Since the creation of our Breaking Down Barriers Accessibility Initiative in 2011, Boston Landmarks Orchestra has been committed to removing barriers of access for all people with disabilities to enjoy its concerts. Landmarks has been an UP designated organization since 2015.
How are Landmarks concerts more accessible?
- Text-to-speech versions of digital program books
- Ambassadors greet and assist people at a designated drop-off point
- American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters as performers at select concerts. Rather than providing direct translation of the spoken word, interpreters communicate the feeling of the music and the remarks given during the concert.
Please call (617) 987-2000 or e-mail [email protected] for more information or if you have any comments or suggestions.
SUBPACs allow those who cannot hear music to still experience it. SUBPACs are high-fidelity machines worn on the torso that convert sound into vibrations. We piloted SUBPACs at two of our Esplanade concerts this season, and we’re excited to expand the program in summer 2022!
For more information about SUBPACs, contact Emilia De Leo at 617-987-2000, ext. 103 or [email protected].
