How early should I arrive?
We encourage guests to arrive one hour prior to each concert to attend our pre-concert talk.
For guests not attending the pre-concert talk, we recommend arriving 30 minutes early. This leaves time to park in our free parking lot, pick up tickets from will call, shop at the VSO store, find your seat and learn more about the concert in the program notes.
Can I use my phone in concerts?
Use of audio and video recording devices is prohibited.
What if I arrive late?
If the doors are closed when you arrive, our volunteer ushers will show you into the hall at the next suitable break in the program so as to not disrupt the performers. Depending on the concert program, this usually will be in between pieces or at intermission. Guests who leave the hall before or during a piece will be reseated after the completion of the work.
What should I wear?
There is not dress code at VSO concerts. Casual everyday clothing is fine but if you want to dress up for a night out go for it!
How long are concerts?
Each VSO concert is different, but most last two hours and include a 15-minute intermission during which guests can chat, enjoy a drink or snack and shop at the VSO store if they would like.
Accessibility
All VSO concert venues are accessible to individuals with disabilities. If you have specific questions or concerns about attending one of our concerts, please call our office at (360) 735-7278.
