Question:
When should I arrive?
Answer
Answer:
We try our best to begin all concerts on time. With that in mind, you should give yourself enough time to comfortably reach your seats prior to the concert time, taking into consideration your parking needs and whether you will need to wait in line at Will Call to pick up your tickets. In general, we recommend arriving at Symphony Center 30 to 40 minutes prior to the concert start time.
