How do I buy tickets?
The easiest way to buy tickets is right here! All you have to do is take a gander at our event calendar, choose the performance you’d like to attend, and follow the purchase flow. You can also give our Box Office a call at (541) 708-6400 or email us at email@example.com.
Can I bring my kids?
A: All children over the age of 6 (six) are welcome to the Rogue Valley Symphony. Parents, please sit with your kids. All concertgoers must have a ticket and their own seat regardless of age.
FOR THE 2021-2022 SEASON: Until there is a COVID-19 vaccine certified for children 12 and under, those under the age of 12 are unable to attend the Symphony, as at this time we are requiring all patrons, staff, and performers to be vaccinated.
Do I need to know about the music before the concert?
Not at all! That’s one reason we love performing live music – it can be enjoyed without any prior musical or historical knowledge. If you’d like to know more about the pieces, though, our Music Director Martin Majkut gives a pre-concert talk one hour before each Masterworks performance in the hall for ticket holders. He usually talks for a half hour about the works to be heard in that performance and is frequently joined by the soloist(s)/composer.
What should I wear?
Dress is anything from Birkenstocks and fleece vests to dresses and suits with ties. Be yourself and enjoy the music! And while the Symphony is a great opportunity to dress to the nines if you’d like, due to the close nature of theater seating and in consideration of those who may be allergic to fragrances, we ask that you refrain from wearing strong perfume or cologne.
When should I arrive?
If you already have your tickets, plan to arrive at least 15-20 minutes before the performance or pre-concert talk, which takes place one hour prior to the concert. If you need to purchase tickets or pick them up from Will Call, plan to arrive at least 20-30 minutes before the performance or pre-concert talk. This will allow you time to park, cruise the concert hall, peruse the program, and find your seats with time to spare.
What if I arrive late?
We understand that unexpected events or just life in general can hold you up sometimes. Once you arrive at the concert hall, our box office staff will show you in at the next appropriate break in the program, which may be after the current movement or piece, or may not be until intermission.
Can I use my phone or tablet during concerts?
Use of any camera and recording devices are prohibited in the auditorium out of respect for the performers and fellow attendees. Please refrain from text messaging during the performance. Remember to turn off phones, pagers, and watch alarms/chimes before the concert starts. Feel free to take pictures of the concert hall, selfies with your programs or tickets, or check in to the Rogue Valley Symphony on social media before the concert begins!
How do I know when to clap?
Applause is a great way to show your appreciation for the performers. If you aren’t sure when to clap, don’t worry – you can easily join in once the applause has begun.
There are number of volunteer opportunities with the Rogue Valley Symphony. Most prominent is our esteemed team of ushers, who assist our patrons to have the best possible concert experience. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, please fill out our Usher form or contact the Box Office with your full name, a preferred email address, and your personal calendar in hand.
Ashland and Grants Pass performances rely upon the dedication of our volunteer ushers, who help to make concerts run smoothly and are often the first point of contact with Symphony patrons. An usher arrives before the concert and reports to the Patron Services Manager, Lisa. Before the concert, the ushers scan tickets, hand out programs, direct the flow of patrons in the hall, open and close the doors, and assist elderly or disabled patrons to their seats as needed. After the concert, the ushers work with the Patron Services Manager to collect programs and any personal belongings left in the hall.
A volunteer usher needs excellent people skills, the ability to stand for extended periods, the ability to work as a team, and a commitment to friendly service. Attire consists of black pants or skirt, and a white or black button-up top. This opportunity is available at the Ashland and Grants Pass venues.
If you’re interested in helping with events or other volunteer opportunities, stay tuned.
