Musical ChairsYour Seat to Musical Discovery!

We believe an appreciation for classical music begins early by experiencing live concert performances. You and your children will sit and listen with awe.

Sponsored by Capital BlueCross, the Musical Chairs program makes a Masterworks subscription of seven concerts affordable for families with students in kindergarten through 12th grade.  Participants attend the full Masterworks series (seven performances between October and May) accompanied by parents or teachers, at a very low cost.

Who Qualifies:

Families with children in grades K-12 qualify for the program. The maximum number of adults per subscription in the program is two.  You will be asked to provide information regarding your child, school information, grade level, etc. after you subscribe.  For information about children at the symphony and answers to other frequently asked questions, click here.

Availability:

Normally, Musical Chairs subscriptions are only available online May through September.  Partial-year subscriptions are not typically available.

Cost:

Regular Price: $42 per qualifying family member for a full Masterworks Subscription.  That’s seven performances for $6 per person, per performance!

Seating/Tickets:

Your subscription seats will be assigned to you.  You’ll have the same seats for each concert of the season.  Special Musical Chairs tickets for the entire season will be mailed to you prior to the first concert.

Saturday vs. Sunday:

When purchasing any subscription, you select Saturday or Sunday performances and receive tickets to that day’s performance for each of the concerts.  Should a scheduling conflict arise and you need to change the day, ticket exchanges may be available for a small processing fee.
