When do I applaud?

Here are a few hints for newcomers who may be unsure about when to applaud at a concert: Once the performance begins, you’ll notice in your program book that many musical works have multiple movements or sections. While a short pause often follows each movement, it is customary to refrain from applauding during these pauses. However, when the piece is over, let loose and go crazy!

Can I buy food or drinks at the performance?

During some events, there are concessions available in the Main Lobby. If you want a quick bite before the concert, consider our recommendations. You may also join Maestro Aaron Collins and the musicians of the Space Coast Symphony for the After Party at a local restaurant following each concert. Free bottled water is available at all performances.

How long is a typical performance?

Most Space Coast Symphony Orchestra performances are about two hours, including one 20-minute intermission.

Where can I learn about the music before the concert?

Program notes are provided in the program book you receive from the ushers upon entering the concert hall. Browse our concert’s page on our website — for select performances you will find program notes, audio samples other educational materials.

What if I’m unable to attend my performance?

All single ticket sales for non-subscribers are final. If you will miss a performance, you may donate your ticket back to the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra and receive a donation receipt.  Please contact us at (855) 252-7276 at your earliest convenience.  Flex tickets are good for any performance.
