Order Early for Best Seating
Subscriptions are filled in the order received, so you get the best available seats by subscribing early.

Provide alternate choices for series and seating locations
Due to heavy subscription renewals, some series and seating areas are limited in availability. To assure the best possible seating, please list a second choice. If your requested seating section is unavailable, we will assign you the next-best available section and refund any difference in price.

Fill out the order form completely
The deposit of your payment is not a guarantee or notification of your seating assignment. For mail orders, payment – check, money order, or complete credit card information – must accompany your order.

Keep a record of your order so you know when your series begins
Your tickets will be mailed to you in May. Changes cannot be made after your series has begun.

Special seating requests
If friends wish to be seated with you, please send all orders in the same envelope, and write your friends’ name(s) and account number(s) in the comments section to the left.

Tickets may be exchanged between series, subject to availability. Prices vary by concert, so any additional charge would need to be paid at the time of the exchange.

Please note:

  • Exchange tickets in your seating area may not be available.
  • Patrons exchanging into a higher-priced seat will be charged the difference.
  • When an exchange is made for a lower-priced ticket, a credit will be added to the exchanger's account, usable during the current season to purchase additional tickets or parking passes. Credits are not transferable and must be used by the end of the current season.
  • There are no refunds for any ticket exchange.
  • Any exchange request must be accompanied by tickets with a valid barcode.
