Myth #1. Symphony Concerts are not affordable. In fact, you can get tickets for as low as $7 per ticket!

Myth #2. Symphony Concerts are boring. Symphony music is some of the most exciting and dramatic music ever written. That's why so many movie scores are inspired by symphonic classics.

Myth #3. Concerts are stuffy and long. Our typical concerts are less than two hours and have an upbeat, multi-media approach.

Myth #4. You have to wear a suit and a tie to go to a concert. Come as you like. Some folks like to dress up, others prefer a more casual look. Myth #5. You can only applaud at certain times. We love your applause!
