Blog entry on Benjamin’s April 10 concert with the Boulder Philharmonic quartet, from Malva Tarasewicz, award-winning violinist with the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra and Benjamin’s mom:

“Boulder Phil and Benjamin” Concert

Benjamin Tarasewicz has autism. He’s also an award-winning public speaker and a singer, and he just graduated from Fairview, mid-year. For the past four years, Benjamin has joined his mom (a Boulder High alumna, 1984), in teaching thousands of BVSD students and their teachers about living with autism—educating, uplifting, and inspiring great enthusiasm. See Denver Post

In addition to appearing on TV and in the media, Benjamin has spoken at events around Colorado and beyond, including a keynote speech at the U.S. Autism & Aspergers Conference (2014). Then, last spring, Benjamin was invited to give a TED-talk, presenting his views on Breaking Barriers of Autism: The Power of Kindness & Friendship

Thousands of students have gained insight from this important message, and now, you are all invited to a free acapella vocal concert, headlined by Benjamin!

This amazing event features greatest hits such as My Girl, Unchained Melody, songs by Billy Joel, and more. Wrapping up the program is the world-premiere of a special choral composition commissioned for Benjamin’s music project and dedicated to families living with autism.

The concert is sensory-friendly:  those dealing with autism and other disabilities are particularly invited, and can expect a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Benjamin just presented his first sensory-friendly event, collaborating with musicians from the Boulder Philharmonic orchestra. … by Malva Tarasewicz

SF Family Tree: Yesterado: Stories of Colorado When It Was Young

By Real Live Theater, Produced by Buntport Theater

Sunday, February 21 at 4pm (Lone Tree, Colorado)

Tickets are $5

 Yesterado is the imaginative and fun way to learn Colorado history! Based on various newspaper clippings from the 1890s, you’ll meet Jack Langrishe and Marietta Ravel – late 19th century performers eager to usher you back in time to see Colorado history as you never have before! Pulled from the pulp of the newspapers of the time, this sharp, fun slice of showmanship uses stories of con man Soapy Smith, socialite Molly Brown, and cyclist Dora Rinehart to create a living, breathing portrait of our state when it was still cutting its teeth.

 SF Family Tree is a series designed to present performances in a relaxed, sensory-friendly way. Performers will modify shows to ensure there are no startling noises or visually over-stimulating components. Our team keeps sound levels lower than normal and keeps the lights in the audience higher than normal, ensuring audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be (there is always a “safe room” available) and are asked to wave hands rather than clapping.

 You can buy tickets at LoneTreeArtsCenter.org or by calling the Box Office at 720-509-1000.
