How do I purchase tickets for BSO Midweek Concerts?
For smaller orders of up to 100 seats, we encourage you to order tickets directly online by visiting BSOkids.org and clicking on the concert date/time of your choice. Many concert dates book up quickly, so please reserve your tickets in advance and no later than two weeks prior to the concert date. For orders over 100 seats, please contact us at educationtickets@BSOmusic.org or 410-783-8000.
Payments must be received within two weeks of placing the order or two weeks prior to the performance date, whichever is earlier. Unpaid orders are subject to cancellation. The BSO cannot provide refunds or exchanges except in specific situations of unplanned school closures or delayed opening times (see “What happens in the event of inclement weather?”).
What is the seating process for Midweek Concerts?
Seating is done by the Ticket Office staff to keep groups together whenever possible. If you need special accommodation, please contact educationtickets@BSOmusic.org or call 410-783-8000.
Please confirm with us if you need special accommodation a minimum of two weeks prior to the concert date.
Where are the concerts held?
Midweek Concerts are held at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore at 1212 Cathedral St. Directions to the Meyerhoff can be found at the "Plan Your Field Trip" tab.
When will I receive my tickets to the concert?
Once your order has been placed and paid for, you will receive an Education Acknowledgement Form reflecting the number of tickets purchased. The Education Acknowledgement Form also serves as your ticket to the concert. Please bring a copy of this form with you on the day of the concert and check in at the Ticket Office upon arrival. Your seating assignment will be given to you when you arrive.
What happens in the event of inclement weather?
In the event of unplanned school closures or delayed opening times, as determined by the City of Baltimore and/or area Public and Private School administrations, tickets may be exchanged for a rescheduled concert date (if a reschedule date is available) or a Midweek concert in the same or following concert season (subject to availability), or refunded on a case-by-case basis.
In the event that the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra must cancel a concert as a result of numerous unplanned school closures, the BSO will make every attempt to reschedule the concert. In this instance, tickets may be exchanged for the reschedule date (subject to availability) and refunds may be given on a case-by-case basis.
If a student is absent, can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, no refunds or exchanges are possible for any circumstances except as indicated for specific situations of unplanned school closures (see “What happens in the event of inclement weather?”).
Can I take photographs during the concert?
No. Cameras, tape recorders and video/audio recording are not permitted inside the concert hall.
Can my students sit in the hall or lobby to eat a snack or lunch?
Unfortunately, there is no space in the lobby for groups to eat. You must return to and move your buses immediately following the concert.
We are a small homeschool family. Can we still attend the Midweek Concerts?
Absolutely! Homeschool and small groups are welcome to attend all of our concerts. If you are part of a larger homeschool group and plan to arrive separately, please make sure that all parties know the name of the person who placed the order and bring a copy of the Education Acknowledgement Form with you on the day of the concert.
Can I bring my young child if he/she sits on my lap?
You must purchase an individual ticket for each member of your group, regardless of age. If you need to bring a younger child, you may stay in the lobby and view the concert on video monitors. We do not recommend attendance at Midweek Concerts for children under the age of 3. (Children ages 6 months to 3 years are welcome to attend our Music Box Series Concerts. Information regarding Music Box can be found here.)
I have a child with special needs in my class. How can I make sure his/her needs are met?
Please contact the Ticket Office at 410-783-8000 or educationtickets@BSOmusic.org. Every effort will be made to accommodate your group. The Meyerhoff Symphony Hall is wheelchair accessible, and we offer assistance for students who are hard of hearing. Sign-interpreted performances may also be arranged upon request (requests must be made at the time of your reservation but no later than 3 weeks prior to each performance).
Who can I talk to if I have additional questions?
For questions regarding ticket purchases, arrival and check-in, or any special requests, please contact the Ticket Office at 410-783-8000 or educationtickets@BSOmusic.org.
