Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I GET TICKETS?

You can buy tickets to any concert online or by calling 941-306-1202. We also offer subscriptions, which are packages of multiple concerts that offer savings and other benefits. Students can get special discounts as well.

CAN I USE MY PHONE?

Going to a concert is a great reason to unplug for a while. We ask that you silence your phone during our performances. This helps create the best performing environment for the musicians and the best listening environment for the audience. Photos and videos are allowed before and after the concert but recording or taking photos during the music is prohibited.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We encourage you to dress as you please. You’ll see a wide range of fashion among our audience members including business, cocktail, casual, and creative attire.

WHEN SHOULD I CLAP?

You should clap to welcome the performers onstage, and then whenever an entire piece is finished. Some pieces have multiple movements (smaller pieces intended to be played as a set), and it’s traditional not to clap in between them, though sometimes people do. If you’re unsure, just wait to hear if lots of other people clap, and then join in!

CAN I BRING THE KIDS?

It’s important that all our audience members be able to sit quietly, usually for about an hour at a time. We find our concerts are typically enjoyed by kids twelve and older. Don’t forget we offer discounted tickets for students!

WILL I BE SAFE?

Your safety and well-being is our number one priority. Please be aware that weapons are not permitted at any Artist Series Concerts performance. Along with our venue partners, we strictly prohibit the possession, use, or introduction of weapons. Finally, your privacy is also important to us. We will never use your contact information for anything other than sending you information about our concerts and events, and we do not keep your credit card information on file.
