Frequently Asked Questions

Ticketing

I had my tickets emailed to me, what do I do?

On your confirmation email, there will be a PDF attachment that serves as your tickets. When you arrive please show this ticket to the usher on your smartphone or tablet. Our ticket scanners work best when your screen brightness is set to maximum. If you prefer, you may print them out and present the physical copies for scanning.

 

I chose to have my tickets held at Will Call, how does that work?

When you arrive, you should walk up the stairs to the building and take a right. There will be a Will Call table set up next to our Beethoven Statue.

Please note that there are some concerts in which the Will Call table is set up in a different location. Please pay attention to the signage directing to the Will Call table for each specific night. The Will Call table is typically open 30-60 minutes before the start of the performance.
