The cost is $42 per qualifying family member for a full Masterworks Subscription, which includes 7 concerts.  If you are a family of two adults and two children, the total price for your four subscriptions will be ONLY $168.00.  That equals $6 per person, per performance!

When purchasing any subscription, you select either 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 fee of $3 per ticket exchanged.

Subscription seats will be assigned to you on a first come/first served basis. 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.
