The Orlando Chamber Soloists are back with their popular Teddy Bear Story Times, but this year they decided to pair up with the Black Hills Autism Society and offer Sensory Musical Story Times for children with autism.

This is the Soloists 9th season here in the Black Hills, but this is the first year adding a new program for autistic children with a more sensory friendly environment.

Michael Hill says, "Today's story is 'The Ugly Duckling' set for cello and harp. The instruments are a little bit lower in range, it's very subtle, it's very soothing, I think they're really going to enjoy it."

The Orlando Chamber Soloists have been working with a speech language pathologist to modify their original Teddy Bear Musical Story Time to make it more sensory friendly.
