When should I arrive for a concert?

We recommend showing up at least 30 minutes before concerts. This allows you time to park, get to the concert venue, and find your seats. Please see your ticket for door opening and performance start times.

What if I’m late?

Our ushers will let you into the hall at the earliest break in the performance that is not distracting for audience members. At the Orpheum Theater, late seating will take place on the Gallery (3rd) level. You may find your originally-assigned seats after intermission.

At the Venue and During the Concert

What should I wear?

There is no dress code so that’s up to you! You may dress according to your personal preference, ranging from casual to formal, though business casual is the most popular choice.

What should we do when we arrive?

Welcome! Please have your E tickets pulled up and ready to go on your phone. You may need to increase the brightness and enlarge the QR code in the gold box. Have paper tickets? No problem! Show your phone or paper tickets to the usher at the door to get scanned in. Once inside, feel free to grab a drink at the Orpheum theater bar or find your seats. Ushers at the theater doors will have programs. 

If you are the theater by 6:30pm, join that evening’s conductor for a Pre Concert Talk a

Orpheum Concessions

The Orpheum Theater bars (located on the first floor and on the mezzanine) offer a variety of wine, spirits, non-alcoholic beverages, and limited snacks. The bar accepts credit cards only – no cash. Drink and snacks are absolutely able to be enjoyed in the concert hall. Cheers!

When should I clap?

In the classical music world, some pieces of music are made up of multiple sections (called movements). Examples of these include symphonies and concertos. For these works, it’s a tradition for the audience to hold their applause until after the very last movement. If you are ever in doubt, it’s always safe to clap when everyone else does! Some performances are less formal than others so clapping is not discouraged if the performance moves you to do so.
