Are there any tricks to getting better seats for your concerts?
To get the best seats, we recommend you purchase a subscription when they go on sale in March. If a subscription doesn’t fit your schedule and you’re willing to chance your luck, seats may become available the day of the concert from subscribers turning back the tickets they are unable to use.

Do you have a rush line?
There is a student rush for every non-sold out Music in the Park Series concert starting 30 minutes prior to the concert. All available seats are $12, cash only, with valid student I.D., and the seats are non-negotiable. Anyone else is free to purchase tickets at the door when they arrive at the performance, but there is not a special rush price. more information

Finding parking can sometimes be tough for your Music in the Park Series concerts. Do you have any recommendations?
The Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ is a neighborhood church located in the Saint Anthony Park area of Saint Paul.  All parking is street parking.  Please observe posted city parking signs.

I am a patron with a disability, and I am planning on attending one of your concerts at Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ. What accommodations are available?
With advance notice, large print programs are available for any of our concerts. The Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ is handicapped accessible.  An elevator is located at the Chelmsford Street entrance. More information is available by calling our Box Office at 651-292-3268.

I recently found out I can’t make it to a concert that I have already purchased tickets for. What can I do?
Ticket purchasers have the option of donating their tickets back to The Schubert Club as a tax-deductible contribution up to one hour prior to the concert (or until 4:30 online the Friday before a performance by using our online form) or subscribers have the option to exchange into another concert if the exchange is arranged 24 hours prior to the concert.

What is appropriate dress for your concerts?
Most people wear business casual or slightly dressy clothes, but you’ll see everything from khakis to cocktail dresses at our concerts. There is no dress code. Please be considerate of the audience members around you who may have allergies and refrain from wearing cologne or perfume.

When should I arrive?
Please try to arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. Arriving early allows you time to find parking, relax, read the program notes, and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Latecomers will be admitted in accordance with the late seating policy.  All ticket holders are welcome to attend the informal pre-concert discussion with the artists.  These discussions begin at 3pm on the day of the performance and last 30 minutes.

How long are your Music in the Park Series concerts?
A typical performance is usually about two hours and includes a 20 minute intermission. We can not determine the exact length of our programs.

Why can’t I find all the concert programs on your website?
Sometimes we do not receive the concert program until about a month before the concert date. As soon as we receive the program, it will be posted on our website.

When should I applaud?
Audiences tend to wait until all movements or sections of a piece are completed before clapping. You can check your program before or during the performance so you’ll know how many movements to expect. If in doubt, take cues from the rest of the audience.

What do I do if I lost my tickets?
Don’t worry! Call our box office. We can print a duplicate set and void the originals free of charge. If it’s the day of the concert, just come to the box office at the performance site and your tickets can be reissued with photo I.D.

Can I bring my children to your concerts?
These performances are not suitable for young children, though interest and attention spans vary. We recommend that children be at least 8 years old.
