I went to two concerts in Stanford's Music Hall. The first had string quartets. It had breaks where we could go on stage and play. I loved playing the drums. The second had jazz. It was fun. I danced to it. There were a lot of children with autism of all ages.

I was a violinist at the St. Lawrence String Quartet in 2012 and 2013. I just wanted to let you know what an impact the Azure concerts had on me.... They inspired me to push my own boundaries, to see what I could really do with music to reach out to people with autism. I believe that music can be so much more than just an aesthetic, creative expression. It's a social experience, a way of becoming politically and ethically engaged, a responsibility and a way of communicating where language fails. I'm sure this concert touched the families of the children with autism, but it also affected me. It changed how I related to people with autism and other developmental disorders; it altered the way I see music, and how to adapt music based on my audience. I had so much fun at the Azure concert. Thank you.

Azure has been a godsend. It's a chance to see performances that would otherwise not be available and to work on appropriate behaviors. Because of Azure I have seen positive behaviors in my son that I had not realized he could display or maintain for extended periods. Just because at some earlier time your kid could not do something does not mean that they cannot do it at a later time....
