CMA is committed to improving access for everyone at our events. We make every effort to ensure events are presented in wheelchair accessible venues and when this is not possible, it is clearly noted.

Access Symbols we use to indicate access for events, where applicable, include
Using the White Cane Access symbol indicates physical access for people who are blind or vision impaired. Such as visual art or museum exhibitions that may be touched or, in CMA's case, when a guided/touch tour is offered prior to a live chamber music performance. Audio Describers deliver the touch tour and lead patrons in meeting the performers and discovering key elements such as the size, shape and construction of the different musical instruments they will play and how that affects and varies the sound.
Audio description is commentary for people who are blind or vision impaired. Audio Describers deliver information on actions and visual elements. When it is offered for live events, Audio Description is delivered live in dialogue pauses and scene changes via a wireless transmission system.
