The LPO offers additional ticket delivery methods:

Will Call

Tickets will be held and available for pickup at the concert hall beginning one hour prior to the performance. Will call tickets will only be available until 5:00 p.m. on the last business day prior to the day of a concert.


Tickets will be mailed via USPS to the address indicated on the order. Orders for tickets placed less than five days prior to the respective concert will not be eligible for mail delivery.

Refund Policy

The LPO does not issue refunds but does offer exchanges. Patrons also have the option to donate the value of the tickets to the orchestra as a tax deductible donation. 


Exchanging Tickets

The deadline for exchanging tickets is 5:00 p.m. on the last business day prior to the day of a concert.

There is a $10 exchange fee per ticket. This exchange fee is waived for all season subscribers.

Tickets may be exchanged for new tickets at the same price level or lower. If you wish to upgrade your tickets, you will only owe the difference in price.

At the time of the exchange, you may either (1) select a comparable seat for a different concert or (2) receive an account credit, valid through 5/13/22 for single ticket purchases only.

Account credits may only be applied towards the current season. All exchanges are subject to availability.

How to Exchange Tickets

There are two ways to request an exchange:

When requesting a ticket exchange, please provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • The number of tickets you wish to exchange
  • The date of the concert(s) that you will not be attending
  • The date of the concert(s) that you wish to attend
  • An LPO Patron Services representative will contact you to confirm the status of your exchange.

Lost Tickets

Should you misplace your tickets, simply call or email the LPO Patron Services Office or visit the LPO ticket table at the concert hall on concert night for replacement tickets at no charge.

Reprints can be placed at will call, or emailed to you for printing at home. Once new tickets are printed, the original one(s) become invalid and can no longer be used. Any tickets reported as misplaced, but later found after reprinting has occurred, must be destroyed as you will not be allowed entrance using those tickets.

Subscriptions and Subscriber Benefits

Purchasing any of the following subscription packages will entitle you to subscriber benefits for the current season:

  • Platinum Pass
  • Gold Pass

Discount Tickets

Current subscribers receive a 10% discount on eligible LPO ticket purchases. 

Donate Tickets

If subscribers are unable to attend a concert and do not wish to exchange their tickets, they may donate the purchase price of their tickets to the LPO. Patrons who donate their tickets will receive a full tax donation for the purchase price. Donating your ticket allows the orchestra to return your seats to inventory and sell them to another patron. The deadline for donating tickets is 30 minutes prior to the performance.

How to Donate Tickets

There are three ways to donate tickets:

  • Email your request to tickets@lpomusic.com
