Seeing the Music! Xenia Concerts, Phoenix the Fire and Kyla Charter

Saturday, March 11, 11 AM
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Join Xenia Concerts for a family-friendly performance by Kyla Charter that embraces neurodiversity and disability. This sensory-friendly performance will include songs by Canadian musical icons, including Leonard Cohen, paired with artwork from the AGO Collection and Musical ASL Interpretation.

Lending her soulful vocals with elevated harmony, singer-songwriter Kyla Charter has lent her voice, and rhythm guitar playing, to a number of acts from Alessia Cara to Patrick Watson. The young artist is currently focusing on her solo artistry, in support of her critically acclaimed debut album Edible Flowers.

A Tkaronto-based actor, Gaitrie Killings is a theatre maker who develops facial expressions and body languages to bring Deaf/hearing actors to work together on the stage in physical theatre styles. Gaitrie continually seeks to challenge herself through new techniques and learning from her mentors who specialize in ASL musical and theatre styles. She founded Phoenix The Fire.

Xenia Concerts works with the neurodiversity and disability communities to design, produce, and present exceptional family-friendly concerts that embrace neurodiversity and disability. Accessibility and inclusion are at the core of Xenia’s artistic programming, and the concert environment is designed to adapt to the diverse needs and interests of audience members who identify as neurodivergent or having a disability. Xenia Concerts welcomes all listeners!
