What do people wear to the concerts?
Concert-goers usually dress as they would if they were going to a play, a religious service, or a nice family restaurant.

How long will the concert last?
The evening concerts are about 90 minutes to two hours in length (including an intermission.) The matinees are 60 minutes in length with no intermission.
At this time there is no food or beverage concession available.
Is the concert appropriate for children?
Matinees in general, and the Family Concert in particular, are good concert choices for children. They are generally more casual in presentation and shorter in length.
Evening concerts are appropriate for children who can sit quietly for 45 minutes or more at a time.
Can I buy tickets at the door?
Tickets are sold at the door on a space-available basis; if the concert is already sold out, concert-goers can wait in the lobby for unclaimed tickets to be released shortly before the concert begins.
I've never gone to a symphonic concert performance, is there any etiquette I need to be aware of?
Thanks for asking.. that's a great question! Appropriate concert behavior is something that everyone should follow when attending a professional symphony performance, a high school band concert, or a beginning piano recital and any live theater performance.
