ACCESSIBILITY

Windsong strives to be an inclusive, accepting, and accessible space.

Events

ASL Interpretation

Dwana Crawford, from the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center, has been our ASL interpreter at every major Windsong concert for several years now.


Rehearsals

Cleveland State University

Beginning this fall, Windsong rehearsals will be held on CSU’s campus at the Music & Communication building (“MU” on this map) at 2001 Euclid Ave. Cleveland 44115.

CSU's Music Building is accessible with a wide ramp and automatic doors at the Euclid (front) entrance. There are elevators in the building and accessible bathrooms.

There is short-term paid parking by the music building, as well as on-street meters on Euclid, East 21st, East 18th, East 22nd, and Chester. There is also a lot adjacent to the music building (Lot CG, entrance on East 21st). In addition, there are non-CSU owned parking lots nearby.

Scents and Allergens

In both official (i.e. rehearsals or concerts) and unofficial events (social gatherings), we have strict rules against wearing scented products so that members with serious medical sensitivities and allergies can participate. This includes, but is not limited to: hair products, deodorants, perfumes, dryer sheets, and other scented products. Please follow good asthma etiquette. Wear clothes that are as free of pet hair and dander as you can make them. Do not smoke directly before rehearsal.


Sensory

It is perfectly acceptable and encouraged for those with sensory difficulties or sensitivities to take care of their needs. Members are welcome to wear ear plugs, ear defenders, or noise-cancelling headphones outside of performance time.
