Purchasing Tickets in Advance

You do not have to purchase tickets in advance although it is recommended to guarantee a seat. When you purchase in advance, you have the option to choose your seat.  Donors to the festival are able to purchase advance tickets at a special reduced price.

Children are charged the student rate of $5 for Festival Faculty and Fellow Orchestra concerts. However, many of our concerts, including the Children's Concert, are free.
