Experience: What to Expect

Prepare for your evening

Arrive 30 minutes early, timely arrival is appreciated. For yours and others’ convenience, if you do happen to arrive after the performance has already begun, you will be seated at the next opportune moment (in between movements or intermission).

What do I wear?

Some concertgoers enjoy dressing up in their finest, while others prefer a bit more casual attire. 
Please also be respectful of the sensitivities and/or allergies of others by using light touch with perfumes and colognes.

Are evening concerts appropriate for children?

The evening concert series is appropriate for ages 8 and older. Babes in arms and younger children are invited to attend the Chamber Music in Sacred Spaces Series.
Thank you for your consideration. Please note that EVERY seat is ticketed.

When do I clap?

Traditionally, the audience waits to clap at the end of a piece. You can follow along through the “movements”, or sections, of a piece in your program book. (Usually the conductor lowers his baton to his side).

Electronic Devices:

Anything with beeping or ringing potential should be turned off before the concert. 
Cameras and recording devices are prohibited in the concert hall, (including the recording options on a cell phone).

Patrons with limited mobility or special needs:

Wheelchair and companion seating are available, however the number of seats are limited. 
Phonic Ear Systems are available at no charge in the lobby of the Morrison Center and Brandt Auditorium.

Patrons with special concerns may call our offices at 344-7849 for assistance in making their concert experience more comfortable.
