There may be some special concerts still but you need to order your season tickets now. Great year just concluded with interesting selections, new and old. Special program especially good for children. Good for mobility-challenged with ramps and elevators.

Every time we have been to the symphony, we have enjoyed it tremendously. beautiful music, great acoustics, friendly staff and reasonable prices during intermission. Comparable to the Chicago Symphony but less expensive.

Do I need to purchase a ticket for a 3 year old?

Regular classics concerts are not appropriate for a three year old. Pops, Xmas oK I guess. Call the office.
How are the acoustics in the balcony (cheap seats :) ) compared to the main floor? Thank you!

Balcony seats are particularly good. Elevator available. Acoustics are good and you get a great view. (It's where I sit)
