Duquesne University: FULL SPECTRUM: Exploring the Role of Music in the Autism Community

Hosted by the Mary Pappert School of Music and City Music Center of Duquesne University in partnership with Band Together Pittsburgh and Achieving True Self. Underwritten by the Pittsburgh Foundation.

FULL SPECTRUM is a free musical event series designed to connect families and individuals in the autism community to one another through a common love and enjoyment of music.

Featuring a rotation of guest musicians as well as experts in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the program series will blend informative presentations and performances (some led by artists who are themselves on the spectrum) with weekly music-making activities such as drum circles, an instrument petting zoo, and musical games as well as an open recording studio session with a live rock band! Come and go as you please.
