‘Perfect Pitch’ Coming To Glimmerglass Festival
By Eric Malanoski (Townsquare Media News)
The Glimmerglass Festival will present a sensory-friendly performance of Perfect Pitch, a baseball-themed musical revue, on Thursday, August 25, at 2 p.m. in the Pavilion next to the mainstage. The Kelberman Center, which offers programs and services for children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families, is providing support for this new initiative at Glimmerglass, thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties.
Perfect Pitch features members of The Glimmerglass Festival's Young Artists Program, an apprenticeship for emerging performers, directors and coach/accompanists.
The Festival is working with a Kelberman Center educator to create a theatrical experience that may be enjoyed by youths or adults with autism or other sensory sensitivities.
The Glimmerglass Festival is located at 7300 State Highway 80 in Cooperstown.
