We're Glad You Asked...

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.

Where can I park?
Free general parking is offered in the lot adjacent to Kenan Auditorium and in
additional lots along Randall Drive. A limited number of reserved parking spaces
are set aside in the lot next to the auditorium for WSO donors who contribute
$150 or more to the annual fund. Signage will direct you to appropriate parking
areas. Campus police officers will be on hand to supervise parking.

Several handicapped parking spaces are next to the auditorium.

Persons using wheelchairs, and who will be unaccompanied, should call our
office (791-9262) at least 24 hours in advance to arrange for assistance.

Is there an elevator in Kenan Auditorium?
Although Kenan Auditorium does not have an elevator, the building is handicap-
accessible. Passengers can be dropped off at the front portico of Kenan and can
enter the building via a wheelchair ramp along the south side.

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.
