Subscription Ticket

Subscribers are those who purchase tickets for the same program series for a season or a year. During the subscription period, subscribers are always assigned the same seat, and they save money on ticket purchases.

What is a subscriber?


Four benefits to being a subscriber

Reserve your seat

You can enjoy concerts of the program series on the days of your choice in the same seat.


Save money on ticket purchases

You save more than 15% if you subscribe for one year, and 10% if you subscribe for a season compared to purchasing single tickets.


Seating priority

You can continue to purchase subscription tickets, change your seat or purchase an additional series for the coming season before tickets go on sale to the general public (additional purchases are for Programs A and C only).


Changing the date


Should it become inconvenient for you to attend a concert on the date of your choice, you can switch to the day prior to or the day after the date of your initial choice. (Reservation required. This applies only for the same month and the same program.)


Benefits to subscribers


Save 10% per single ticket for a subscription concert (except E seats).
