The James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts understands that patrons with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other special needs have unique and varying sensory issues. Entering a large auditorium with many people can be challenging and overwhelming, and the JLC staff will help provide a supportive and welcoming environment for all audience members. Sensory accommodations will be provided in a judgement-free, gentle manner while also preserving the genuine experience desired by all patrons and their families.

SENSORY GUIDANCE
• Reduction of loud or jarring sounds.
• No flashing/strobe lights during performance.
• House lights will also be modified accordingly during the performance.
• Audience members are free to vocalize or move around throughout the concert.
• Audience members are welcome to bring their own manipulatives, seat cushions, comfort objects/toys, and extra support items to the show.
• Guidance and sensory supports (including earplugs and stress-reducing toys) will be available at the JLC box office before the show.
• If overstimulated or in need of personal space, there will be a designated “quiet/chill” area in the JLC lobby.
• Call our box office at (847) 543-2431 for special assistance, including availability of buffer seats for additional personal space.

Roughly translated, Taiko means “big drums” ‒ and that’s exactly what Taikoza brings to the stage. This exciting group draws from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance to create a highly visual, energetic performance. The show’s sound is derived from a variety of instruments, including drums of assorted sizes, the shakuhachi and fue (both bamboo flutes) and the Koto (a 13-string instrument). Audiences will be carried to a new dimension of excitement as this incredible troupe creates powerful rhythms and electrifying, room-thumping energy.

“The members gave their bodies over to … very physical and musical performances. - the highly appreciative audience was treated to physical dexterity and lovely, magical flute music.”
-Boston Herald

The dynamic, Chicago–based jazz vocalist Spider Saloff performs her one-woman show the Cool Heat of Peggy Lee in this intimate performance. Acclaimed as one of the great interpreters of the Great American songbook – Ms. Saloff is both a gifted song stylist and actress, renowned for her inspired, introspective performances. In this show, Ms. Saloff will pay homage to the smoldering style of Peggy Lee, from her humble beginnings through the glamour and chart-breaking recordings of the 1950s and 60s.

“Slyly sophisticated, easily accessible, Saloff stands as a kind of ideal.”
-Chicago Tribune
