The concert hall opens 30 minutes prior to the concert. Guests are encouraged to be seated 15 minutes prior to start times.
Can children attend?
Children regularly attend our concerts. We just ask that they be quickly removed from the hall if they become disruptive. Entry requires a valid ticket for all individuals, including for children who might otherwise not occupy a seat.
